9783642083013: Is Inheritance Legitimate?: Ethical and Economic Aspects of Wealth Transfers (Ethical Economy)

The debate on inheritance and inheritance taxation has always been linked with the " efficiency versus equity issue". Some consider inheritance taxes as highly appropriate means to bring forth more economic equality, especially equality in starting conditions. Others openly doubt the effectiveness of inheritance taxes in this domain, and point out that the negative effects may outweigh the positive. Some go as far as to say that high inheritance taxes threaten fundamental ethical values and should therefore be abolished. In this book both economists and philosophers try to disentangle these and related theoretical issues. It gives an overview of what economists and philosophers have to say on the matter, and confronts and discusses two radically opposed reform proposals.

Book Description Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. K. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 236 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 5.9in. x 0.7in.On 8 November 1995 we organized the conference Is Inheritance Legitimate Ethical and Economic Aspects of Wealth Transfers at the University of Antwerp (UFSIA). The conference brought together economists, philosophers and other social scientists to discuss the issues of bequest and inheritance. The conference programme featured five invited contributions; the revised versions of these five papers consitute the core of this book (Chapters 2, 3, 4, 6, and 7). Also included in this book are the written versions of the comments presented by the two discussants (Chapters 5 and 8). We also gave the opportunity to the authors who defended two radically different opinions on bequest and inheritance to comment upon one anothers position (Chapters 9 and 10). Chapter 1 serves as an introduction; it situates the debate on inheritance in a broader ethical and economic framework, and summarizes the main points of the book. The conference was organized as part of a research project funded by the Flemish Fonds voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek (project number G. 0032. 95). Within UFSIA the conference was hosted by the Vakgroep Arbeidseconomie of the Studiecentrum voor Economisch en Sociaal Onderzoek (SESO) and the Centrum voor Ethiek. The secretarial staff of SESO, in particular Annernarie Bunneghem and Linda Teunkens, did an excellent job in organizing the conference. Patricia De Bruyn and Tom Schatteman were extremely helpful in preparing the manuscript for the publisher. Antwerp, January 1997.
