Choice is a marker of freedom, but also a consequence of limited resources. Because choices about health follow from evaluation, we now inhabit a world of DALYs and discounts, where the interval between birth and death is a "statistical life". Does this fixation about measurement lead to the best decisions about improving health? Or is cost-effectiveness just the price of everything divided by the value of nothing?
