This edited volume demonstrates the value of critical thinking about health policy as communicated by one of the world’s most influential health economists.

Short new pieces by colleagues celebrating Professor Alan Maynard’s contributions to academic and public life are followed by a selection of his own writings on topics ranging across competition, markets, quality, incentives, equity and efficiency, rationing, and drug and alcohol policy. They illustrate his use of intellectual insight, wit and purposeful provocation to achieve impact. Maynard’s work matters: it matters to policy-makers, managers, practitioners and citizens, as well as to academics.
