ABOUT THIS BOOK
By what criteria should public policy be evaluated? Fairness and justice? Or the welfare of individuals? Debate over this fundamental question has spanned the ages. Fairness versus Welfare poses a bold challenge to contemporary moral philosophy by showing that most moral principles conflict more sharply with welfare than is generally recognized. Fairness versus Welfare has profound implications for the theory and practice of policy analysis and has already generated considerable debate in academia.
