A Class of Fair Distribution Rules a la Rawls and Sen
This paper discusses and develops "non-welfare" arguments on distributive justice a la J.Rawls and A.K. Sen, and formalizes, in co-operative production economies, "non-welfaristic" distribution rules as game form types of resource allocation schemes. First, it conceptualizes the Needs Principle which the distribution rule taking individuals' needs into account should satisfy. Second, one class of distribution rules which satisfy the Needs Principle, a class of J-based Capability Maximin Rules, is proposed. Third, axiomatic characterizations of the class of J-based Capability Maximin Rules is provided.
