Bob Corbett, instructor

  • MORAL OBLIGATIONS TO DISTANT OTHERSA paper by Bob Corbett which investigates the question in relation to the individual, not the state. Nonetheless the basis argument is relevant to our question.
  • WELL-FED CATS AND HUNGRY CHILDRENA paper by Bob Corbett which develops a criterion of "circle of closeness" for dealing with moral obligations to any others from human, animals in general or, for that matter, nations.
  • DOWNWARD MOBILITY AND THE OTHERA paper by Bob Corbett which argues that richer nations unjustly make use of the land, labor, natural resources and often thwart the political self-determination of other nations in order to profit from them.
  • THE PROBLEMATIC OF HUMAN RIGHTS An essay by Bob Corbett which explores the distinction between positive and negative rights. While the discussion is not directly on the topic under consideration it does explore the basis of some of the arguments which are quite relevant.
  • Author: Martin Wolf. Title: "Spreading the world's wealth: Poverty can be signigicantly reduced only by exposing the poor to the opportunities presented by trade and inward investment" published by "Financial Times (London)".
