The Rawlsian principles of justice reconsidered : paper prepared for the 3rd international meeting of the Society for Social Choice and Welfare, Maastricht, 22 - 25 June 1996

  • Of Rawls's two principles of justice only the second has received attention from economists. The second principle is concerned with the social and economic conditions in a just society.
