Shameless Health Care Wonkery


If you read only one random essay on health care policy esoterica by a cantankerous wonk today, make it Clark C. Havighurst's response in the latest Cato Unbound forum. Havighurst, who is capable of writing sentences like "the true vices of the tax subsidy are three," nonetheless lays out the awe-inspiring dysfunction of the current insurance system in nine short paragraphs. Sparring partners Jonathan Cohn (of The New Republic) and Arnold Kling (of Cato) are worth a read as well.
