    I am thinking we need a thread to discuss this type thing, but for now...if people are not forced to carry health insurance, then every one is paying for those people without insurance, and we don't gain anything. I think that part is not really part of the solution or problem. I think we do need to look at and implement some form of tort reform(small gains, but gains nonetheless), interstate competition, and a host of other things I don't know about. Let me look at making a new thread in general politics and link to it for handy reference.

    I think all those small things would have the same effect as tackling welfare reform (1% of the budget) has on balancing the federal budget, . . . hardly noticeable. Just as you can't tackle the federal budget without tackling the big three, you can't really do any serious medical reform without looking at payers. And medicine has the additional problem of access.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
