David Schmidtz on Inequality at Cato Unbound

This month’s Cato Unbound ought to be catnip for Fly Bottle readers. Dave Schmidtz kicks off this month’s issue with a great little essay about “When Inequality Matters.” It draws from his new book, Elements of Justice, which is, to my mind, the best book in libertarian political thought since Nozick, and truly deserves wide attention.

Dave is one of my biggest philosophical (and personal) influences, and I can’t help but think the world would be better off if he influenced more people’s thinking. I hope you’ll take a look at Dave’s essay, buy his book, and if you have a blog, tell us what you think. Peter Singer will comment on Wednesday, Cato’s Tom Palmer on Friday, and Yale’s Jacob Hacker next Monday. Should be good stuff.
