Ethical case and economic feasibility of global transfers
Almost all social transfers are conducted within nations. Is there a case for cross border transfers? What could be the grounds for such transfers from the globally rich to globally poor people? The paper explores three possible grounds: compensation for the past wrongs; economic and political interdependence today; and the application of a Rawlsian difference principle at a global scale. The paper ends by arguing that global non-governmental institutions are likely to play a key advocacy role.
