Summary
Rising inequality is not just an economic and political issue: it is fundamentally a moral concern. But relatively few books have directly addressed this moral concern, and fewer still have done so through a comparative ethical perspective. The essays in this volume explore and compare how a number of influential ethical traditions--secular and religious, Western and non-Western--wrestle with the moral dimensions of inequality, whether it is morally permissible to acquiesce in practices and systems that contribute to it, whether there is a moral obligation to alleviate it, and, if so, who is morally obligated to do what--back cover
