Hey Joseph! I like how you simply laid out the differences between utilitarians and libertarians on the subject of wealth accumulation. Rawl’s theory is a nice happy medium for this topic in my opinion. Thanks for making the differences distinct.

Overall, good powerpoint presentation on the three theories. Next time, consider bringing in a reference outside the text. That would have added to your position.

According to Rawl’s theory, accumulation of wealth could be unjust if it only benefits the rich, and does not benefit the least-advantaged members of the society. Otherwise, accumulation of wealth is even beneficial for productivity. But economic inequalities should be attached to positions and offices open to all individuals and it should benefit the least disadvantaged. Social inequality is justified when everyone has the opportunity to complete. No one should be given special treatment because of the circumstances given to them such as social level of parents.
