Abstract:     We propose a global and morally mandatory heuristic that anyone involved in an action which can possibly generate harm for others, even probabilistically, should be required to be exposed to some damage, regardless of context. We link the rule to various philosophical approaches to ethics and moral luck. The mathematical appendix shows risk hiding in the absence of such a heuristic

So, just read Skin in the Game: Hidden Asymmetries in Daily Life.

It's fantastic. Very well written and thought-provoking. Definitely worth a read.
