Buchanan’s Samaritan’s Dilemma

Abstract : The Samaritan’s dilemma is not only about the detrimental effects help can have on the beneficiaries. As James Buchanan explained in his 1975 essay, the dilemma is about inequality, strategic courage, and individual responsibility. It was a means for Buchanan to show how ethical courage matters to the promotion of equality.
