Resumen

De acuerdo con una visión ampliamente aceptada, el derecho privado debe quedar al margen de la redistribución de recursos. Esta tarea debe dejarse al derecho tributario y al gasto público. En este artículo argumento que el derecho privado puede contribuir en esta tarea de modo significativo. Contra las objeciones usuales, intentaré mostrar que algunas de sus normas, en especial las relativas a la responsabilidad civil y los contratos, no son particularmente ineficaces o ineficientes en comparación con las alternativas propias del derecho público. Siendo esto así, el rechazo del derecho privado como un medio idóneo para la implementación de políticas redistributivas carece de fundamento.
