‘Scepticism about desert has been common among theorists of justice, both those who favour a social contract account and those, like Hayek, who have a different view. Yet, although the concept of desert seldom figures in contemporary contract theories of justice, it is an element in the common sense morality of modern democracies. Can we reconcile common sense thinking and social contract theory in respect of the principle of desert?’
