Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary Using both theoretical methods and practical political analysis, this work shows how recent Supreme Court decisions and campaign finance regulations map onto a pernicious and growing inequality in America. John Attanasio puts forward a novel solution grounded in a new principle of personal autonomy. The solution Attanasio proposes is the principle of 'distributive autonomy,' sharply contrasting it with the individualism of modern libertarian ideas, which have given rise to the radical inequality that reduces, rather than enhances, autonomy. A profound synthesis of theory and practice, politics and capital is crucial to understanding the ominous political and economic problems besetting 21st century America.
