“Many contemporary philosophers disagree…they believe that we should…seek some general theory of justice in economic distribution, on the basis of which we can assess current social practices. Three such theories are the utilitarian, the libertarian, and the Rawlsian (egalitarian).”

How would each of the theories of justice in economic distribution – utilitarian, libertarian, or egalitarian – apply? Explain your reasoning.
