Another interesting look at various elements of the health care debate linked below. I have often expressed my opinion that the free market will do a better job of addressing the problems we see with medical care than a central command and control government system. One argument against this is that health care is life and death and that changes our usual decision making process. OK maybe.
The linked article addresses this and makes the point that in fact most medical situations (including dentistry) are not life and death. Maybe we should stop trying to stuff all health care into the same over filled bag and address different aspects of the situation with different solutions.
…health care is different because it involves life and death decisions. Yes, that is an unusual feature of some elements of health care, but not all: indeed, not most. For example: going to the dentist is rarely a life-or-death decision.
