Having Too Much: Developing A Riches Line
Third seminar in the Climate Change, Inequality and Social Policy seminar series 2017/18: ‘Having Too Much: Developing a Riches line’ by Ingrid Robeyns.
This seminar will present the argument that it is not morally permissible to have more resources than are needed to fully flourish in life. It is instrumentally necessary to limit ‘riches’ above this level to protect political equality and to meet urgent needs. Some indications are given on how such a riches line might be defined.
