In the Media: Nancy Neiman Examines the Intersection of Markets and Social Justice on Academic Minute Podcast

Professor of Politics Nancy Neiman examined the intersection of markets and social justice on the Academic Minute podcast. When markets operate in the context of strong community norms, she said, “market actors are incentivized to make decisions that are in the best interest of the community . . . because those decisions are in fact in the best interest of those whose identities are inseparable from their communities. When embedded in ‘infrastructures of justice,’ markets tend to promote socially just outcomes.”
