What is economic justice? In this week’s episode we are joined by Bill Sundstrom, Professor in the Economics Department at Santa Clara University, and Bannan Faculty Fellow in the Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education. Professor Sundstrom’s research looks at the causes and consequences of poverty and income inequality in the Silicon Valley region, as well as relevant policy responses. In this week’s episode he examines the often competing values that underwrite current U.S. economic practice, proposing three economic principles to advance the common good: security, opportunity, and fairness.
