“A Brief History of US Medicine: The Role of Government and the Nature of Insurance”
What have been the unintended consequences (side effects) of government laws and regulations in the practice and delivery of medicine? Do the benefits outweigh the negative effects?
What is the history of health insurance in the United States - and how have regulations contributed to the rising costs of both insurance and health care? How does insurance work - and why is it NOT working in health care the same way that it works in other types of insurance (fire, life, auto, etc)?
