"Our main duty toward distant others is a duty of noninterference with their personal projects. This is a global extension of Loren’s seminal treatment. Drawing on the institutionalist literature on development (Landes, North, De Soto, Acemoglu-Robinson), we claim that the world’s poor are wronged, not because of insufficient aid from rich countries, but because political structures stand in the way of their flourishing."
