Disability compensation and responsibility

Politics, Philosophy and Economics 9 (4):411-427 (2010)
Abstract
It is a central political goal to secure disabled individuals the same opportunities as others to pursue their conception of a good life. This goal reflects an ambition to combine an egalitarian and a liberal moral intuition. In this article, we analyse how disabled individuals who take part in economic activity should be compensated in order to respect these two intuitions. The article asks how a system of disability compensation should be structured and what the level of such compensation should be. It also analyses how the answers to these questions depend on whether the disabled individuals are held responsible for their choice of work effort
