John C. Goodman, author of Priceless: Curing the Healthcare Crisis, appeared on the Sean Hannity radio program on Thursday, October 31. Goodman discusses alternatives to Obamacare, as outlined in his book "Priceless." If patients control their healthcare, then providers can compete on quality and price, instead of government bureaucracies dictating healthcare choices to consumers. Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice also joined the discussion.

From fingerprinting to criminal sentencing, from lawyer licensing to judicial selection, and from eminent domain to wealth transfers via class-action lawsuits, how do perverse incentives impact the law and what reforms would create a more just and efficient legal system?
Independent Institute Research Fellow Edward Lopéz, Associate Professor of Law and Economics at San Jose State University and editor of the new Institute book The Pursuit of Justice, talks with Institute President David Theroux about the faulty incentives at the heart of government legal failures and whether market-based alternatives can provide viable solutions to the serious problems caused by the bureaucratization and politicization of the law.
