ATLAS Summit 2016 @ Freedom Fest: What Insurance Is and Isn’t—Getting Medical Costs Under Control
July 12, 2016 @ 1:15 pm - 2:15 pm
Dr. Beth Haynes, BRI executive director, delivers a talk at ATLAS Summit 2016 @ Freedom Fest: What Insurance Is and Isn’t—Getting Medical Costs Under Control.
There is much talk about how to control medical costs. Medical inflation continues to outpace general inflation. Why this is happening has much to do with the fact that what is called “health insurance” really isn’t insurance. We argue that coerced wealth distribution is immoral, but this argument does not resonate with everyone. Being abel to also argue the economic aspects of healthcare can strengthen your ability to make the case for freedom in medical care. Come learn about the nature of insurance, what it is and isn’t, why current health policy is doomed to fail, and what better alternatives exist.
