A Mildly Technical List of the Bad Policy Choices that Make the U.S. Healthcare System What It Is

In class I refer to the U.S. healthcare system as a Frankenstein monster: every time something doesn’t work properly, we add something new that usually doesn’t work properly either.

Dawn Smit, writing at The EclectiSite has put together a nice summary of the big issues, where they came from, and how they went wrong. Click through and read “Health Care: How In the World Did We Get Here?”

It’s not perfect or completely unbiased, but this is the best quick-read summary of all the issues that I’ve ever seen.
