Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not sure what you're talking about.

The whole premise here is that ET is looking for other moral standards than the default economic one of income and growth measurements. Rawls, however, is still mostly just income and growth. Dimensions of well-being like influencing others don't enter into Rawls' picture.  Sen, however, generalizes past things like the standard economic default to what people actually can and want to do with their lives. That seems like a better way to go.
