Equality v inequality

Boyes asserts, correctly in my view, that economists can and do disagree. This post exemplifies the disagreement in economics over the fundamental trade off between efficiency and equity. I view this trade off as one between liberty and security. In any event, the feminist viewpoint is only one of many that comprise the unconstrained or anointed vision that I am currently considering in my reading of Intellectuals and Society.

This fundamental disagreement is one of many compelling reasons to consider what responsibility participants hold to engage in civil discourse. Dan Klein joins with Thomas Sowell in challenging those of us who advocate for liberty to engage in a debate over the fundamental disagreement over the trade off between liberty and security.
