Equal Opportunity and the Currency of Compensation

Laurence Kranich ()

Discussion Papers from University at Albany, SUNY, Department of Economics

Abstract: I provide three very simple examples to demonstrate the point that the result by Bossert and Fleurbaey concerning the general impossibility of achieving equal opportunities is largely due to their particular framework and is not necessarily robust to consideration of alternative means of compensating for innate differences.
