EQUALITY, HIERARCHY, AND GLOBAL JUSTICE

  • James M. Buchanan (a1)
Abstract

Western liberal societies are described by a mix of two contrasting ethical presuppositions, that which commences from a perspective that views persons as natural equals and that which commences from a perspective that classifies persons hierarchically. Differences in this mix among separate polities may create difficulties as principles of justice are extended across national boundaries in response to continuing globalization.
