Show Summary Details


Examines Dworkin's use of the market to track how considerations of individual responsibility should affect entitlement to resources over time. Liberals should favour a responsibility sensitive theory of income and resource distribution, but the account offered by Dworkin's theory of equality of resources does accurately track the relationship between entitlement and choice.

Keywords: ambition sensitivity; distribution; effort; entitlement; income; market; occupational choice; option luck; responsibility; risk
