From Healthcare to WelfareSubmitted by HeathieAnCap on Mon, 07/02/2012 - 08:51
I actually listened to this a couple days ago and the murky world of health insurance is so much clearer to me now thanks to (my favorite economist) Hans-Hermann Hoppe's lecture on the real nature of "health insurance."
P.S Did anybody here already know that Ludwig von Mises had a brother who was also a genius? He was a mathematician who worked at the same university as Albert Einsten. Hoppe talks about LvM's brother in the first 5 minutes - if you want to get straight to the meat of the lecture go to 5:30.
Bonus: You can download this, and all of Hoppe's lectures for free from Itunes! (that is actually how I happen to run into this golden one.)
