Citing historical data and modern examples, she clarifies why BRI’s position is that free enterprise, more than any other approach, is the best way to ensure the most optimal outcomes for the most people, at the lowest prices and highest quality.

POST-EVENT SUMMARY: Six students attended the lecture, asking interesting questions and engaging with the topic of free enterprise as it relates to the poor. For several of the students it was an heretofore unexplored issue. Dr. Beth Haynes gave an excellent presentation on how healthcare markets benefit the poor. In the post-presentation discussion there ensued an interesting exchange on the wisdom of government anti-smoking efforts, and the unseen consequences that could result from such “good-intentioned” policies.

“This was a unique event as there haven’t really been any talks this entire year devoted to healthcare policy.” ~Daniel Milyavsky, BRI-Stony Brook president
