John Cochrane of the University of Chicago and Stanford University's Hoover Institution talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about how existing regulations distort the market for health care. Cochrane argues that many of the problems in the health care market would go away if these distortions were removed. In this conversation, he explores how the market for health care might work in the United States without those distortions. He also addresses some of the common arguments against a more choice-oriented, less top-down approach.
You will be able to see Cochrane in person when you attend the 2012 Condliffe Memorial Lecture in Economics at Canterbury on Wednesday, 5 December, 6:30pm.
