100 Years of Government’s “Managed” Health Care

Michael Accad at Mises.org:
“But in my 2-part series on the economic history of American medicine, I examined how healthcare has been “managed” from its inception in the late 1910s, when the Flexnerian reforms and the ensuing medical licensing laws began to influence (and limit) the type of medical care Americans could choose to receive.”

Freedom isn’t Free, But is it on Sale Yet?

Jack Perry at LewRockwell.com: Freedom isn’t free, huh? Wow, who knew? Say, do they still have that old double coupon thing going on? You know, maybe for every soldier we lose in another insane war, we can get credit for having lost two of them. “We won the war, Amereeka!!” No, you didn’t! It’s Tuesday! Double Coupon Day! We get credit for two decisive battles, not one! I still can’t find the payment kiosk downtown to make my Freedom Payment. They mailed me a Five Day Notice. Actually, I’m looking for the receipt. I’d like to take it back for a refund of my tax dollars. I think I can find freedom at a lower price somewhere else.

Am I the only one getting bored by the repetition? – Peter Schiff

Last year, when alternative economic analysts were warning that the commodities downturn and oil crash just after the taper of QE3 were blaring signals for a downshift in all other financial indicators, the general response in the mainstream was that we were overreacting and paranoid and that the commodities jolt was temporary. Perhaps the fact needs repeating that it’s not paranoia if they are really out to get you.

(Who can really know about that?)
