Relativism, Reflective Equilibrium, And Justice, Justin Schwartz

Justin Schwartz

THIS PAPER IS THE CO-WINNER OF THE FRED BERGER PRIZE IN PHILOSOPHY OF LAW FOR THE 1999 AMERICAN PHILOSOPHICAL ASSOCIATION FOR THE BEST PUBLISHED PAPER IN THE PREVIOUS TWO YEARS.

The conflict between liberal legal theory and critical legal studies (CLS) is often framed as a matter of whether there is a theory of justice that the law should embody which all rational people could or must accept. In a divided society, the CLS critique of this view is overwhelming: there is no such justice that can command universal assent. But the liberal critique of CLS, that it degenerates into ...

Social Security Trust Fund (Sstf), The Government Fiscal Use Of The Sstf, And Intergenerational Equity , Jae Kyeong Kim

A Spatial Econometric Model For Transboundary Air Pollution Control Treaties: An Analysis Of Noncooperative International Behavior , Keith Allen Sargent Jan 1997

A Spatial Econometric Model For Transboundary Air Pollution Control Treaties: An Analysis Of Noncooperative International Behavior , Keith Allen Sargent

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

This dissertation develops a theoretical model that explains differences in emission reductions of transboundary air pollutants among nations based on national income, political freedom, the cost of emission reductions, emissions from other countries, the type of pollutant, and the pollutant's dispersion characteristics. The model is based on the theory of the private provision of impure public goods. This theoretical model is then used to derive a reduced form demand equation for emission reductions that can be econometrically estimated using spatial autoregressive techniques for time-series cross-section data;The econometric model is applied to 25 European nations and covers the period ...

External Shocks And The Real Exchange Rate: A Simulation Model For Egypt , Khalifa Hassanain

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

In March 1990, the Government of Egypt (GOE) launched a comprehensive economic and social reform program (ERSAP) to strengthen Egypt's ongoing adjustment program. The reform program constituted a major break from the policies pursued in the past, and had the underlying objective of modernizing the country and improving living standards. While the program has scored many successes, many observers of the Egyptian economy believe that the real exchange rate (RE) is currently out of equilibrium;The RE prevailing in a country at any point in time is determined by two main factors: structural (e.g., external capital flows, changes ...
