The author critically discusses some of the major arguments given for the growth of inequalities in health in the world today. He also questions the 'technocratic,' 'humanistic,' or 'apolitical' discourse used by most international agencies in their analysis of the growing inequalities, a discourse that obscures the actual causes of this growth: the power relations among and within countries.
