    Just Healthcare? The Moral Failure of Single-Tier Basic Healthcare.John Meadowcroft - 2015 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 40 (2):152-168.
    This article sets out the moral failure of single-tier basic healthcare. Single-tier basic healthcare has been advocated on the grounds that the provision of healthcare should be divorced from ability to pay and unequal access to basic healthcare is morally intolerable. However, single-tier basic healthcare encounters a host of catastrophic moral failings. Given the fact of human pluralism it is impossible to objectively define “basic” healthcare. Attempts to provide single-tier healthcare therefore become political processes in which interest groups compete for (...)

    Patients, Politics, and Power: Government Failure and the Politicization of U.K. Health Care.John Meadowcroft - 2008 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 33 (5):427-444.
    This article examines the consequences of the politicization of health care in the United Kingdom following the creation of the National Health Service (NHS) in 1948. The NHS is founded on the principle of universal access to health care free at the point of use but in reality charges exist for some services and other services are rationed. Not to charge and/or ration would create a common-pool resource with no means of conserving scarce resources. Taking rationing decisions in the political (...)

    The british national health service: Lessons from the "socialist calculation debate".John Meadowcroft - 2003 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 28 (3):307 – 326.
    The "Socialist Calculation Debate" is little known outside the economics profession, yet this inter-war debate between liberal and socialist economists on the practical feasibility of socialism has important implications for all contemporary public sector bureaucracies. This article applies the Mises-Hayek critique of central planning that emerged from this debate to the crisis presently facing the British National Health Service. The Mises-Hayek critique suggests that the UK government's plan for a renewal of the National Health Service will fail because of the (...)

  4. The Cambridge companion to Nozick's Anarchy, state, and utopia.Ralf M. Bader & John Meadowcroft (eds.) - 2011 - New York: Cambridge University Press.
    Robert Nozick's Anarchy, State, and Utopia (1974) is recognised as a classic of modern political philosophy. Along with John Rawls's A Theory of Justice (1971), it is widely credited with breathing new life into the discipline in the second half of the twentieth century. This Companion presents a balanced and comprehensive assessment of Nozick's contribution to political philosophy. In engaging and accessible chapters, the contributors analyse Nozick's ideas from a variety of perspectives and explore neglected areas of the work such (...)

    The Socialism of the Rich: Egalitarianism, Wealth, and Privilege in Academic Philosophy.John Meadowcroft - 2022 - Social Philosophy and Policy 39 (2):169-187.
    This essay explains the prevalence of egalitarian beliefs among academic philosophers, individuals who enjoy significant wealth and privilege. I argue that their egalitarianism does not present a “paradox of conviction,” as G. A. Cohen contends, but follows logically from the institutional structure of academic philosophy. This structure creates a “veil of insignificance” wherein philosophy is a moral performance that incentivizes the adoption of egalitarian beliefs. Philosophers also view the world from behind what is termed a “veil of privilege” that incentivizes (...)
