Tax scholar James M. Puckett joins the faculty
September 5, 2012
For Professor James M. Puckett who recently joined the faculty at Penn State Law, the name of the game is fairness. He is a scholar of distributive justice. “I examine perspectives on how resources should be distributed in society and their implementation in the tax system,” he explained. “This is an interdisciplinary approach and it sometimes challenges classical notions of happiness, such as the idea that everyone maximizes their happiness if left alone.”
