Abstract

When we invoked the example of the US National Basketball Association’s (NBA’s) scheme for redistribution of new talent as a model offering lessons for a possible future global social support system we hoped that we would stimulate debate. Consequently, we are very grateful to Goldblatt and Labonté for their insightful commentaries that explore some of the issues that arise from our suggestion.

Keywords: Global Social Support System, Redistribution, Solidarity
