The Wall Street Journal ends its "Big Issues" debate series with "Consumer Choice: Can It Cure The Nation's Health-Care Ills?" (free feature). Here's the intro:
Joining the debate are American Enterprise Institute scholar Joseph Antos, who was former assistant director for health and human resources at the Congressional Budget Office, John C. Goodman, founder and president of the National Center for Policy Analysis, and Robert Reischauer, president of the Urban Institute and vice chair of the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission. The debate is moderated by Laurie McGinley, assistant bureau chief at The Wall Street Journal's Washington bureau.
The policy journal Health Affairs covers much the same territory in its Nov./Dec. 2005 issue (series of articles on "Consumerism"). [tm]
