Question Description

Review the TEDTalk on Inequality and Rawls’ Veil of Ignorance. Imagine the ideal organization for which you would like to work (this can be a health care organization, if desired). If you were to use Rawls’ Veil of Ignorance, what rules would you put in place at this organization? Pick two and describe the social contract that would need to be in place, addressing parties involved, how each shows they are part of the social contract, and what actions the parties must take to show they are upholding the contract. Also address any consequences for not upholding the social contract. Fill in the appropriate boxes on the worksheet with 2-3 sentences each. A separate reference page is required.

Supporting your work:
