Asymmetry/punishment/reward/Rawls: the distribution of economic and social benefits is completely different from criminal law. (See L. A. Hart, The Concept of Law (Oxford, 1961), p. 39; Joel Feinberg, Doing and Deserving (Princeton, 1970) ch. V.)
Rawls: rewards are not the reversal of penalties in criminal law. The function of unequal wages is to take into account the unequal training costs and to lure individuals to the places where they are most needed.
In a well-ordered society there would be no need for criminal law, except to the extent that the insurance problem made it necessary (see Isolation/Sen). The question of criminal justice is part of the partial theory of conformity, while distributive justice is part of the strict theory of conformity. Considering distribution and retribution as the other's downside is completely misguided.
