    Social services should be a government responsibility not a feudal employer responsibility. I think there should be free markets but only within certain parameters that prevent wealth hoarding. The winner take all kind of competition that exists now, where failure results in being put out on the streets creates a predatory society that feeds on the less successful and stunts any true creativity beyond finagling ways to hijack revenue flows.

    Thanks for focusing on these healthcare problems..

    Just so I understand, a monopsony when it comes to low-wage labor is seen as a negative, but a monopsony when it comes to the entire medical care sector is seen as a positive?

    Hey jgardner, so good to see you still hangin’ out! Some food for thought:

    “In this tour de force essay, Hans-Hermann Hoppe turns the standard account of historical governmental progress on its head. While the state is an evil in all its forms, monarchy is, in many ways, far less pernicious than democracy. Hoppe shows the evolution of government away from aristocracy, through monarchy, and toward the corruption and irresponsibility of democracy to have been identical with the growth of the leviathan state.”
