Egalitarian economists (by Francesc Trillas)
Here is this nice video featuring egalitarian economists and other scholars giving support to the Occupy Movement. When I say egalitarian economists I mean economists who put equality (of opportunity, rights, capabilities) at the forefront of their values. Most of them do it without compromising their scientific standards. Quite the opposite, they are among the best social scientists in the world. There are many other egalitarian economists not in the video, and not all of them may have the same ideas on everything, but they are a good guide for any young economist trying to combine good values and good ideas.
