Excerpt from Distributive Justice: The Right and Wrong of Our Present Distribution of Wealth

Five of the nine members of the late Federal Commis sion on Industrial Relations united in the declaration that the first cause of industrial unrest is, unjust distribution of wealth and income. In all probability this judgment is shared by the majority of the American people. Re garding the precise nature and extent of the injustice, however, there is no such preponderance of opinion. Even the makers of ethical and economic treatises fail to give us anything like uniform or definite pronouncements concerning the moral defects of the present distribution. While the Socialists and the Single Taxers are sufliciently positive in their statements, they form only a small por tion of the total population. And include only an insignifi cant fraction of the recognised authorities on either ethics or economics.

The volume in hand represents an attempt to discuss systematically and comprehensively the justice of the processes by which the product of industry is distributed. Inasmuch as the product is actually apportioned among landowners, capitalists. Business men. And labourers, the moral aspects of the distribution are studied with refer ence to these four classes. While their rights and obliga tions form the main subject of the book, the etiort is also made to propose reforms that would remove the principal defects of the present system and bring about a larger measure of justice.
