Abstract

Without a convincing account of inequality's causes, egalitarians will continue to cede ground to the right, whose language of prudence and responsibility justifies further tightening of the welfare system. Advancing the cause of equality requires engaging with the right on the terrain of ideas and values, argues Emily McTernan.
