"Resources are finite" is an indisputable statement. Never the less, it also implies a thinking "within the box"; as underlined by this blog-post our discussion around resource allocation revolves around a "fair" allocation of resources given everything else being unchanged. Personally, I perceive this as one of the major shortfalls of the current debate around UHC- "where is the thinking outside the box", including a political discussion around (re)-distribution of resources? Are current inequities in the distribution of income and wealth acceptable and are our societies fair and just? And how would benefit packages and coverage look like in a society with (globally) more even distributions? Admittedly, quite a naive but never the less important question.
