Alternative Optimal Social Orders

Jan Tinbergen

The Pakistan Development Review, 1984, vol. 23, issue 1, 1-7

Abstract: The structure of the optimal order should be found by scientific analysis. State of the art shifts over time. Marx's scientific socialism was based on science a century ago; it must be adapted accordingly. Laissez lave was based on too simple assumptions. Collective goods and marginal welfare equality require State intervention. Level of decision-making must be supranational in some fields. Controversial points and the 'research needed to reduce controversies are listed.
