Lors de la dernière édition de "Tout le monde en parle", le bon docteur Khadir est venu nous faire la morale. Accompagné d'artistes (parce qu'on sait tous que les artistes s'y connaissent en économie), Amir Khadir a tenté de nous convaincre que les mots "capitalisme", "profit" et "croissance économique" étaient sales et responsables de tous les malheurs qui affligent notre planète.

Et si jamais vous avez le malheur de suggérer que pour redistribuer la richesse il faut d'abord la créer, alors vous devenez un méchant tyran néo-libéral…

Je laisse la parole à Joseph Facal:

Pour reprendre l'école de Chicago:

"It is a great mistake to make equality of result a policy goal, because egalitarian legislation can kill incentives to improve. Punishing the rich is self defeating, even for the poor striving to make their way. Equality of opportunity, however, is different. It is something everyone merits by their very dignity as a human being. Thus should a nation strive for quality educational institutions, institute a limited inheritance tax, and otherwise assist those who, through no fault of their own, lack the means to gain entry into the division of labor. Once these institutions are in place, we will find that the forces of market competition will achieve egalitarian goals through predominantly voluntary means."
