Defenders of the free market argue that inequalities of income are just because they are deserved, and that they are what free individuals are entitled to. This book argues that when we examine the principle of desert and the notions of liberty and choice invoked by defenders of the free market, it appears that a conception of justice that would accommodate these notions, far from supporting free market inequalities, calls for their elimination. The book will be of interest to readers in political philosophy, political theory, and normative economics.
