I’ve pointed out before some of the oddities that Ezra Klein produces. All the more surprising when he writes something that makes sense.
Last week on Bloomberg, Klein takes apart some of the assumptions that are used to support the single payer movement within the United States. His main point is that the focus on the role of insurance companies is misplaced. The real problem is on the underlying cost of care: drugs, physician charges, and hospital costs.
Surprising, and well worth the read.
