How to Equalize Opportunities

Acclaimed political scientist John Roemer proposes a unique approach to equalizing opportunities for all.


"Any society can reach, through the political process, some agreement on this question: it can propose at least a minimal set of circumstances such that persons who are disadvantaged with respect to that set should be compensated.

This will lead to policies which equalize opportunities, if not entirely, then at least to a degree."
