The Debt Dialogues [Episode 27]: Gregory Salmieri on Justice

The Debt Dialogues is a weekly podcast that aims to educate young people about the welfare state and how it will affect their future. In this episode, I interview Dr. Gregory Salmieri, who teaches philosophy at Rutgers University and Stevens Institute of Technology, on the subject of justice. Topics covered:

  • The meanings of justice and social justice
  • John Rawls’ theory of justice vs. Ayn Rand’s
  • How our anti-business bias distorts our thinking about justice in economic issues
  • President Obama’s “You didn’t build that” comments
  • How the welfare state unjustly interferes with individuals pursuing happiness
