Sr. Fellow John C. Goodman, author of A Better Choice appears on the Mike Slater show on KFMB radio in San Diego, CA. Goodman describes how free markets and competition help lower prices and improve care for certain medical procedures. In one example, prices for knee replacements came down after an insurance carrier told their patients that they could only go to certain hospitals, where the cost was significantly lower. Soon, other hospitals lowered their costs for similar procedures.
Research Fellow Vicki Alger speaks with nationally syndicated Dr. Drew Pinsky on his radio show about her latest book, Failure: The Federal Misedukation of Americas Children. Alger talks about ending the Department of Education, which has failed America's students since the department was formed in 1979. The bureaucracy that is added to administrator's duties by the Department of Education is harming teachers and students. Local school districts and the states are better suited to know the needs of parents and students, not federal bureaucrats in Washington, DC, says Alger.
