This text aims to show that social welfare theory, as defended by welfare economists and policymakers, is based on a confused and untenable moral theory, is incompatible with a rights-based legal order and is bound to promote unjust and arbitary redistributions. By advocating a return to the Kantian conception of the moral agent, it aims to show the way to a normative economics that harmonizes with both intuitive morality and the American legal and constitutional tradition.
