Incentive Problems and the American Health Care System

If you're willing to spare an hour to consider some of the incentive problems inherent in the American health care system, I'd recommend listening to the most recent episode of This American Life.

The episode is called "More is Less." And it's actually very, very interesting.

Did you expect anything less from Ira Glass?

You're right - I should never have doubted him.

If he can make things like "market capitalization" seem interesting, he should be able to do the same with health care.
