La Mesure des inégalités : Ambiguïtés et paradoxes

0.00 CHF tax incl.

Oft-heard statements such as ‘inequality is greater than ever before’ only mean anything in as far as we are able to compare distinct situations in specific and defined areas (such as income, health, etc) and deduce a greater or lesser inequality. Unfortunately, a detailed and unbiased analysis of the concept of inequality and of the logic of comparisons demonstrates the near-impossibility of comparing inequalities. ‘Measuring’ these is inherently inacurate. Marc Barbut draws out the ambiguity of these questions and examines the main theories of inequality and their history since Vilfredo Pareto.
