From the definition of the Rawlsian approach
The Rawlsian approach to social welfare, built on the foundation of the “veil of ignorance” (Rawls, 1999, p. 118)
where "veil of ignorance" is
So, for example, the veil of ignorance would lead people to refuse slavery, because even though slavery is very convenient for slave-owners, for slaves, not so much, and since behind the veil of ignorance one would not know whether they would be a slave or a slave-owner, they would refuse slavery
From, my understanding, it means that people refuse slavery because they do not know whether they are slave or slave-owner
At this time, the uncertainty avoidance of behavioural economic also pops up on my head.
Ambiguity aversion, or uncertainty aversion, is the tendency to favor the known over the unknown, including known risks over unknown risks. For example, when choosing between two bets, we are more likely to choose the bet for which we know the odds, even if the odds are poor, than the one for which we don’t know the odds.
Is there any overlap between these two theories?
