[Comment] Offline: The rule of law—an invisible determinant of health

In January, 2016, in Beijing, Randall Rader, a former Chief Justice of the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, gave a speech to a private gathering of Chinese Government officials. He had been invited to set out his assessment of China’s progress towards the creation of an effective legal system. “The law is the foundation of all prosperity”, he argued. By prosperity he didn’t mean only wealth. He included all aspects of a society that underpin its peaceful order and good functioning, including health.
