By combining normative philosophy and empirical social science, I craft a research framework for assessing

differential expectations of economic justice within the economic social contract of the United States. I argue

that distinct viewsof such a contract grounded in the tradition of individualism and communitarianism

manifest in people's judgments about economic justice. We empirically test these hypotheses on a sample of

270 subjects, finding broad support for the theoretical framework.
