Brian Barry on Justice - Dictionary of Arguments

Gaus I 294
Justice/international relations/Barry/Brown: limiting (Barry, 1989)(1). Barry's (...) account of 'justice as impartiality' has substantial international implications; >Justice/International political theory.
Impartiality/Barry: impartiality requires that the vital interests of each be put before the non-vital interests of anyone, which means that the existing distribution of wealth, and the environmental degradation characteristic of contemporary capitalism, must be regarded as unreasonable and unjust. The inescapable conclusion is that the advanced industrial world should slow down, or put into reverse, its growth and transfer resources to the poor via a system of 'progressive' global taxation (Barry, 1994(2); 1998(3)). >Inequalities/International political theory; cf. >Taxation, >Tax Competition.
BarryVsRawls: >Justice/International political theory. Cf. >Justice/Rawls, >Distributive Justice/Rawls, >Justice/Beitz.
