Political competition theory and applications by John E Roemer( file )
17 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 1,181 libraries worldwide
In this book, John Roemer presents a unified and rigorous theory of political competition between parties. He models the theory under many specifications, including whether parties are policy oriented or oriented toward winning, whether they are certain or uncertain about voter preferences, and whether the policy space is uni- or multidimensional. He examines all eight possible combinations of these choice assumptions, and characterizes their equilibria. He fleshes out a model in which each party is composed of three different factions concerned with winning, with policy, and with publicity. Parties compete with one another. When internal bargaining is combined with external competition, a natural equilibrium emerges, which Roemer calls party-unanimity Nash equilibrium. Assuming only the distribution of voter preferences and the endowments of the population, he deduces the nature of the parties that will form. He then applies the theory to several empirical puzzles, including income distribution, patterns of electoral success, and why there is no labor party in the United States
Theories of distributive justice by John E Roemer( Book )
16 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 794 libraries worldwide
Roemer explores the major new philosophical concepts of the theory of distributive justice - primary goods, functionings and capability, responsibility in its various forms, procedural versus outcome justice, midfare - and shows how they can be sharpened and clarified with the aid of economic analysis. He critiques and extends the ideas of major contemporary theories of distributive justice, including those of Rawls, Sen, Nozick, and Dworkin. Beginning from the recent theories of Richard Arneson and G. A. Cohen, he constructs a theory of equality of opportunity. Theories of Distributive Justice contains important and original results, but it can also be used as a graduate-level text in economics and philosophy
Equality of opportunity by John E Roemer( Book )
15 editions published in 1998 in 3 languages and held by 707 libraries worldwide
Common to both positions is that at some point the principle of equal opportunity holds individuals accountable for the achievement of particular objectives, whether they be education, employment, health, or income. Roemer argues that there is consequently a "before" and an "after" in the notion of equality of opportunity: before the competition starts, opportunities must be equalized, by social intervention if need be; but after it begins, individuals are on their own. The different views of equal opportunity should be judged according to where they place the starting gate that separates "before" from "after." Roemer works out the precise nature of the equal opportunity policy once the starting gate has been determined
A general theory of exploitation and class by John E Roemer( Book )
10 editions published in 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 585 libraries worldwide
Analytical foundations of Marxian economic theory by John E Roemer( Book )
19 editions published between 1981 and 1990 in English and held by 581 libraries worldwide
Professor Roemer's goal in this book is to give a rigorous view of classical Marxian economic theory by presenting specific analytic models. The theory is not extended to deal with new problems, but it is deepened: Marxian theory is given micro-foundations and upon those foundations the author begins to rebuild a tightly constructed Marxian economics. The book begins, after a methodological introduction, with an examination of the Marxian notion of equilibrium and the theory of exploitation, and goes on to deal with the theory of the falling rate of profit. The next section explores one of the points made in the first section of the book, that the Marxian theory of exploitation can be constructed completely independently of the labor theory of value as a theory of exchange. Technical study of this problem allows comment on various issues, such as the relative importance of 'marginal utilities' and 'class struggle' in determining relative prices. The final part examines models of various Marxian concepts

The Idea of democracy ( Book )
19 editions published between 1986 and 1995 in English and held by 548 libraries worldwide
In the wake of the recent creation of new democratic regimes around the world, political theorists have begun to rethink the nature and justification of this form of government. This collection of essays contains work by a group of prominent philosophers, economists, political scientists and legal theorists, all of whom address a variety of fundamental questions about democracy: How effective is it? How stable can it be in a pluralist society? Does it deserve its current popularity? Can it successfully guide a socialist society? With its interdisciplinary focus, this volume should be of particular interest to political philosophers, political scientists, economists, and legal theorists

Egalitarian perspectives : essays in philosophical economics by John E Roemer( Book )
23 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 508 libraries worldwide
This book presents fifteen essays, written over the past dozen years, on egalitarianism. The essays explore contemporary philosophical debates on this subject, using the tools of modern economic theory, general equilibrium theory, game theory, and the theory of mechanism design. Egalitarian Perspectives is divided into four parts: on the theory of exploitation, on equality of resources, on bargaining theory and distributive justice, and on market socialism and public ownership. The first part presents Roemer's influential reconceptualization of the Marxian theory of exploitation as a theory of distributive justice. The second part offers a critique of Ronald Dworkin's equality-of-resources theory, and puts forth a new egalitarian proposal based upon a specific method of measuring individual responsibility. The third part introduces a novel application of the theory of mechanism design to the study of political philosophy, and raises new concerns about the limitations of that application. The fourth part presents the author's views on market socialism and public ownership, and demonstrates that Professor Roemer is at the forefront of refining new theories and conceptions of market socialism

Racism, xenophobia, and distribution : multi-issue politics in advanced democracies by John E Roemer( Book )
10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 355 libraries worldwide
"From the Republican Party's "southern strategy" in the United States to the rise of Le Pen's Front National in France, conservative politicians in the last thirty years have capitalized on voters' resentment of ethnic minorities to win votes and undermine government aid to the poor. In this book, the authors construct a theoretical model to calculate the effect of voters' attitudes about race and immigration on political parties' stances on income distribution." "Drawing on empirical data from the United States, the UK, Denmark, and France, they use their model to show how parties choose their platforms and compete for votes. They find that the Right is able to push fiscal policies that hurt working- and middle-class citizens by attracting voters who may be liberal on economic issues but who hold conservative views on race or immigration."--Jacket
Democracy, education, and equality : Graz-Schumpeter lectures by John E Roemer( Book )
18 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 308 libraries worldwide
"Many believe that equality of opportunity will be achieved when the prospects of children no longer depend upon the wealth and education of their parents. Many also believe that democracy is the political institution that will bring about justice. This study asks whether democracy, modeled as competition between political parties that represent different interests in the polity, will result in educational funding policies that will, at least eventually, produce citizens with equal capacities (human capital), thus breaking the link between family background and child prospects." -- Publisher description

Intergenerational equity and sustainability by International Economic Association Roundtable Meeting on Intergenerational Equity( Book )
14 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 165 libraries worldwide
This book addresses the issues of intergenerational equity, intertemporal efficiency, and collective rationality of social decision-making. How should the welfare of future generations be treated vis-a-vis the welfare of present generation? How should we design and implement social security reforms? How can we formalize the notion of sustainable economic development, and what are the conditions that warrant the sustainability of development path? In the context of the problem of global warming, where a large part of those who are responsible for causing the problem do not exist anymore, and a large part of those who will be most severely affected by the problem do not yet exist, why and how should the present generation assume responsibility to take actions against this problem? Contributions come from distinguished economists who specialize in this area, and are tied by the common thread of taking a welfare-theoretic approach to the problem
