Euvoluntary Exchange In NRO

Interesting NRO piece by Reihan Salam on Euvoluntary Exchange. Nice examples. And the question at the end is the right one. I just don't know the answer.

What are the sources of the disparities we care, or rather that we should care, about?

Actually I think it's the wrong question. I think we should care about all them, although we should direct public policy at only some of them.

I'll take that as a friendly amendment. The "we care" part has to be about the threshold at which public policy is triggered.

But sure, "we care" about people who are in trouble, even if no public action is required.
