Property Owning Democracy, Liberal Republicanism, and the Idea of an Egalitarian Ethos

In T. Williamson (ed.), Property-Owning Democracy: Rawls and Beyond. Wiley-Blackwell (2012)
It is argued that only the embedding of Rawlsian political liberalism within a republican framework secures the content of his view against Cohen's critique of Rawlsian special incentives. That content is fully specified in the form of a property-owning democracy; only this background set of institutions (or one functionally equivalent to it) will secure the stability of Rawls's egalitarian principles. A liberal-republicanism, rather than political liberalism alone, offers deeper grounding for our commitment to a property-owning democracy as a privileged political economy for the expression of our egalitarian ideals.
