Introduction; 1. Desert and justifications of the market; 2. Incentive payments and compensatory desert; 3. Productive contributions and deserved market rewards; 4. Liberty and entitlements in the libertarian justification of the free market; 5. The moralised defence of the free market: a critique; 6. The free market, force and choice: beyond libertarians and their critics; Conclusion.
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. Far from supporting free market inequalities, 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, the conception of justice that would accommodate these notions calls for their elimination. The book will be of interest to readers in political philosophy, political theory, and normative economics.
