Distribution of goods
The distribution of goods is generally performed by two means. First, people pay for the goods they want. Second, other people give them goods for free (either voluntarily, as in charity), or involuntarily (via taxation and government hand-outs).
Greenburg and Bailey wrote:
- Our economic system already results in the disproportionate possession by the wealthy of many goods that contribute to children’s well-being and success (education, nutrition, medical care, etc.). This may pose a moral problem for capitalism but it hardly constitutes a legitimate moral objection to genetic or other selection per se. And, of course, it would be highly questionable to argue that the solution to this disproportionality problem would be to entirely ban more expensive education or medical care, so that, for the sake of fairness, everyone is kept at the educational and medical level of the poorest people in our society.
