Free and Equal: What would a fair society look like? makes the FT's summer reading list
20 June 2023
Free and Equal: What would a fair society look like? has been chosen as one of the best reads on economics for this summer by the Financial Times.
The book by Daniel Chandler is described by the paper’s chief economics commentator Martin Wolf as “an important contribution” to building a blueprint for a better society.
In Free and Equal, Chandler draws on the ideals of John Rawls, a prominent philosopher of the 20th century, to explore how, through adopting a progressive agenda, society could be reshaped to be fairer and more inclusive.
Chandler recently spoke about his work at the event ‘What Would a Fairer Society Look Like?’ as part of the 2023 LSE Festival: People and Change.
Daniel Chandler is an associate of CEP and a PhD candidate in Economics at the London School of Economics.
