Added by: Carl Fox
Content: A very short, but very clear overview of the differences between Rawlsian resourcists and capability theorists over the appropriate metric for distributive justice. It also sets out very nicely and very succinctly the main argumentative strategies employed by both sides in the debate.

Comment: Would make good required or further reading in a module on distributive justice, especially in relation to questions about metrics of justice.
