This is not a research paper; you do not have to cite or interact with any additional sources beyond the Zwolinski and Snyder readings.

Prompt: State in your own words what the “non-worseness claim” (NWC) is. Explain how it relates to the issue of price gouging. Be sure your explanation engages with Zwolinski’s argument involving the NWC. Determine and state whether you think the non-worseness claim is true or false. If you believe the NWC is true, explain why the principle seems to conflict with people’s moral phenomenology; in other words, explain why there seems to be a natural and widespread condemnatory reaction toward price gougers, but not toward those who do nothing at all to help victims of disaster. If you believe the NWC is false, explain why and how it goes wrong.
