Trust, Titmuss and blood
Richard Titmuss challenged the market-based approach to social problems in the case of blood supply. His criticisms can, however, be answered if a system of strict liability is in place and if commerce works effectively with charitable activity. It is false to draw a dichotomy between markets and narrow self-interest, on the one hand, and mechanisms that make for the well-being of others, on the other.
