It is not straightforward to define the ethics of responsibility in cases where the consequences of factors under our control are partly affected by factors outside our control. One way to approach this issue is to ask how an increase in one individual's effort should be allowed to affect the post-tax income of others. In this paper we show how different answers to this question can be used to characterize interesting redistributive mechanisms.
