Is There a Health-Care Problem in Western Societies?
By Enrico Colombatto
This article appeared in the Winter 2012 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

Although government health-care programs have been a tremendous drag on economic growth in most developed countries, they remain popular with large segments of the population. Moving away from a government model would likely require, not the dissemination of studies showing that it undermines prosperity, but a sea change in the way people view human dignity, individual responsibility, and natural rights.
