- Libertarians ordinarily look at the idea of income and wealth redistribution very skeptically. And they should—if redistribution by the state for the purpose of equalizing incomes, boosting productivity, or achieving other macro-level goals is in view. But a number of the goals of statist programs of redistribution can, perhaps surprisingly, be served by a distinctively libertarian approach to redistribution, focusing on the rectification of past injustices, the elimination of privilege, solidarity and mutual aid, and market exchange.
- Gary Chartier is Associate Dean of the Tom and Vi Zapara School of Business and Professor of Law and Business Ethics at La Sierra University in Riverside, California. A member of the Alliance of the Libertarian Left and a trustee and senior fellow of the Center for a Stateless Society, he serves on the advisory board of the Journal of Philosophical Economics, the editorial board of Libertarian Papers, the advisory board of the Moorfield Storey Institute, and the board of directors of the North American Religious Liberty Association—West.
