Abstract

Here and elsewhere in the article, Johansson and Norheim are explicit about their focus on inequality in outcomes, viz. on “inequality in the age of death.” However, the bulk of their analysis focuses on inequality in expected life years, that is, on chances. In this note, we argue that in three of their dilemmas, outcome-egalitarians will draw conclusions which differ dramatically from theirs. We believe this conclusion is important, because we take outcome-egalitarian concerns to be justified.
