Abstract: While public health interventions ensuring clean water and decent sewerage have been massively beneficial, more recent advocacy work crosses the line from policies generally meant to further the public interest to those removing individual autonomy. Worse, public health use of market failure as justification for intervention does severe violence to economists' understanding of the concept.
