John E. Roemer, Elizabeth S and a Varick Stout Professor of Political Science and Economics John E Roemer

In this original and powerful work, John Roemer proposes a general theory of exploitation that provides a game-theoretic framework for expressing any conception of exploitation--feudal, capitalist, or socialist--in a standardized and explicit way, thus permitting a clear comparison of different ethical conceptions.
