Property-Owning Democracy and the Difference

Samuel Freeman
Published Online: 2016-02-11 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/auk-2013-0103

Abstract

John Rawls says: “The main problem of distributive justice is the choice of a social system.” Property-owning democracy is the social system that Rawls thought best realized the requirements of his principles of justice. This article discusses Rawls’s conception of property-owning democracy and how it is related to his difference principle. I explain why Rawls thought that welfare-state capitalism could not fulfill his principles: it is mainly because of the connection he perceived between capitalism and utilitarianism.
