Notes

First edition, first impression. The book was based on a series of lectures Meade gave at the University and of the Business School in Stockholm in May 1964. John Rawls in his magnum opus, The Theory of Justice, said he owed much to this work, while in turn Meade's economic philosophy was said to be influenced by Rawls. David Reisman in his biography of Meade, wrote "Both Meade and Rawls saw in the other's philosophy a powerful confirmation that equality is an efficient tool for raising utility" (Reisman, pp. 36).
