The Big Question: Is there an alternative to Obamacare?


 

A health policy discussion with Booth colleagues Matthew Gentzkow and Matthew Notowidigdo.
The original is here at the Booth / Capital Ideas website. The other “big ideas” videos are really good.
My views expressed here are summed up a bit more eloquently in a recent WSJ Oped, here, and a longer essay “After the ACA” available here. More on health economics and insurance, including how individual insurance can protect against preexisting conditions on my webpage here, and by clicking the “health economics” link to the right.

  1. Hi bruce – there IS an alternative of course . . . Medicare for All. I can’t see a single downside . . . mandatory for all ages with the cost controls now in that system. Health care would still be private, only insurance would be public. (and Happy New Year!)
