Can you describe further your concept of 'economic justice'.

Lets use a simplistic example. 2 men. 1 has gained skills and resources to sow and reap a harvest. it matters not how, he simply has the ability. man 2 does not, for the purpose of this example it matters not if the reason is indolence, lame legs, poor education or bad potty training.

The consequences of both mens actions are that man 1 gets food and man 2 doesnt. So how do you go about applying justice? What are the factors to consider? Is there only outcome (so it literally doesnt matter why one produced and the other didnt) or do we differentiate the inability to produce between disablement/enablement and indolence/ambition? How so?
