Comparing societies with different numbers of individuals on the basis of their average advantage

Author

Abstract
At an abstract level, one can view the various theories of justice that have been discussed in economics and philosophy in the last 50 years or so, including of course that of Serge-Christophe Kolm (2005), as attempts at providing criteria for comparing alternative societies on the basis of their “ethical goodness.” The compared societies can be truly distinct societies, such as India and China. They can also be the same society examined at two different points of time (say India today and India 20 years ago) or, more counterfactually, before and after a tax reform or demographic shock.
