    The doctrine of sufficiency, originated by Harry Frankfurt, has over the past years grown into a prominent competitor to egalitarianism as the leading distributive ideal for political philosophy. This paper elaborates on the content of the doctrine of sufficiency as well as different ways to unfold it as a guiding principle for distrib-utive justice. The paper distinguishes between: (i) hybrid-theories, which use suf-ficiency together with other distributive principles; (ii) vertical multiple-threshold theories, which identify several sufficiency thresholds on the same unified dimen-sion; and (iii) horizontal multiple-threshold theories, which identify several distribu-tive spheres each with their own sufficiency threshold. The paper argues that hori-zontal multiple-threshold theories are the most promising and defendable versions of the doctrine of sufficiency.
