The Consequences of Equality reviews how attempts by equalitarians to equalize human outcomes not only fails, but often makes matters worse, hurting the very people they claim to be helping. Warning against utopian, heterotelic schemes, Battagloioli calls for a worldview that acknowledges hierarchical realities and criticizes those who ignore them.

Book Endorsement(s)

The Consequences of Equality is a critical analysis of egalitarianism. Economics, political theory, ethical theory, and sociology are all used to tackle some of the most controversial questions of the day: “What is the nature of equality?” “Are people truly equal, and in what ways?” “What would it mean if they are not?” and, most importantly, “What occurs when a society fails to accept the inevitability of inequality?”

Dr. Richard Lynn
