Alongside environmental degradation (and closely related to it), the globally unequal distribution of wealth is one of the key political problems of our age. Anyone who wants to understand (and fix) this problem has to understand how and why property is distributed in the way that it is. Explaining this is the core task of Just Property. This third volume brings the property story right up to the present. The book concludes by returning to the project's opening questions about property and inequality and about property under the imperative of growth to limits. and judges that we need, as a political community, to re-think the ways in which we allocate property and suggests some of the ways in which we could do this.
