Brilliant Analysis of Healthcare


This guy, David Goldhill, is a businessman.  He has also spent a lot of time researching our dysfunctional healthcare system and writing articles, books and now doing interviews.  He is a democrat!  Please watch this whole thing.  He gets it.  All your questions about doctors, hospital costs, the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid, Government involvement, and personal responsibility are answered.  Do not try and give your opinion (i.e. healthcare is a right) about healthcare ever again without watching this.

    Goldhill makes some excellent, common sense points from a business – as opposed to a political perspective. I’ve argued before that the best results are solutions that combine consistent philosophy with practical success, and I think mr Goldhill’s ideas point the way toward that.
