Response to David Haslett

  • Barry Bracewell-Milnes
Conference paper
Part of the Studies in Economic Ethics and Philosophy book series (SEEP)


This note responds in detail to Haslett’s comment on my paper, in which I am mentioned by name, as well as more briefly to Sections I and II of his paper. The response starts with general comments and then addresses particular arguments. I cannot deal with all Haslett’s arguments within a reason space and therefore restrict myself to the most important.
