Question 1: How should the role of citizen by designed and performed? Social justice and the varieties of capitalism: Individuality, flexibility, and social well-being

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial

Abstract

The normative question of how citizenship should be structured is addressed. It is argued that citizenship should be structured around the maximization of individual choice, discovery and invention. This argument is rooted in the observation that highly productive advanced industries societies depend on the capacity for individual creativity. These societies and the ways in which they are organized must be taken seriously for reasons of power. This indicates that today, one either lives within an industrially advanced society or risks being dominated by one. Indeed, these societies not only are powerful, but they also are worthy of praise because they can promote social well-being through properly organized markets and appropriately crafed social policies.
