Age change, official age and fairness in health

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperComment/debateResearchpeer-review

In a recent JME article, Joona Räsänen makes the case for allowing legal age change. We identify three problems with his argument and, on that basis, propose an improved version thereof. Unfortunately, even the improved argument is vulnerable to the objection that chronological age is a better proxy for justice in health than both legal and what we shall call official age.
