In this paper I will address the question of how we should construe market transactions from the perspective of luck egalitarianism. The dominant view of what luck egalitarianism requires in market transactions can be summarized as follows,

Since any transaction must be freely agreed to by both agent’s, all inequalities arising from transactions are a matter of option luck for both agents.

On this view, luck egalitarianism considers the market as an ’anything goes arena’. Further, the inequalities luck egalitarianism construed this way will legitimate, is often seen as providing a reductio ad absurdum against luck egalitarianism as a principle of equality or justice. I will be proposing that luck egalitarianism does have specific things to say about the fairness of market transactions.
