If you haven’t already checked it out, there’s a good debate about the economics of health care taking place in the comments section of this post.
We have a number of things to say about health care, some of which we’ve already said (here and here). Beyond maximizing efficiency, something Spikers and Decker and Branden know more about than we do, one must also consider individual liberty. Growth of statist programs like universal health care limit personal liberty. As you might have guessed from the title of this blog, liberty is an important principle to us.
So, let the debate about the relative economic merits of universal health care continue, but remember liberty.
One other thing from the comments section of that blog post: Backhanded compliments like Mike_D’s highlight one of the strengths of this blog–its intelligent, educated, and well-informed readership. Cheers to y’all.
