Aaron James, Professor, Department of Philosophy, University of California at Irvine.

I've recently written a book for a general audience with finance and law ace Robert Hockett (Cornell law) entitled Money From Nothing: Why We Should Learn to Stop Worrying About Debt and Love the Federal Reserve (Melville 2020). I have new academic papers on money and related topics, which are noted below.

In political philosophy, I've written a book on fairness in the global economy, from a social contract perspective (Fairness in Practice: A Social Contract for a Global Economy, OUP 2012). I've also written about John Rawls's constructive method, its neglected realist and interpretive aspects, and its application to social structures within and across major domestic institutions (such as international trade).
