  • A political-ethical theory that focuses on issues of what is just in society, not in terms of procedural laws but in terms of allocations of goods. Distributive justice is concerned with how society distributes the burdens and benefits of the economy to the individual. One of the major proponents of distributive justice theory is the political theorist John Rawls. A key principle in Rawls's version is the Difference Principle, which states that all services, liberty, knowledge, and equality are to be allocated equally unless an unequal allocation will result in an advantage to those least favored in society.
