Government and Health Care: The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

TCSDaily has an article by Arnold Kling that looks at health care in terms of what works, instead of what’s considered politically correct, or what scores the correct political points.

To summarize, he looks at three areas of health care, access, quality and cost, and summarizes the good things government can do, the bad and the just plain ugly, based on sound economics and experience.

Access Quality Cost
Good

  • vouchers
