In “What Do We Deserve?,” Namit Arora considers the problems that emerge when we confuse
economic and social outcomes with merit or worth; in other words, when we assume that
economic or social outcomes equate to “moral desert” (59). Using sources from the FAU
library databases, write an essay in which you make an argument about how our beliefs
about economic justice or fairness impact a particular issue. (For example, how is the
issue of student loan forgiveness connected to beliefs about economic justice and fairness?
How do our beliefs about economic justice shape our feelings on this issue? What does
applying an economic justice lens to this issue help you understand?) Your goal in this essay
is to apply the lens of economic justice to a specific issue, explain how this issue is
shaped by beliefs about economic justice, and take an informed position on this issue in
response to economic justice concerns. Your position on the actual issue (for or against
student loan forgiveness, welfare reform, living wage, etc.) is only part of the job; you must also
explain how the issue is affected by beliefs about economic fairness, and show how your
position responds to these beliefs/concerns. Apply specific ideas and quotes from Arora as
well as 3 sources (minimum) from your research in order to support your analysis.
