Disclaimer: I am a Libertarian-Progressive. I generally trust markets more than I trust government, primarily because I think its easier to inspire real change and harder to make massive mistakes in the free market however I think government must harness the power of markets and put bumper-rails in to protect the masses from greed overdoses. I supported Barack Obama in the 2008 election and continue to do so.

32. A plausible future of health
Today, doctors are manipulated by the fear of malpractice into recommending unnecessary procedures that individuals accept because of an information disadvantage. We have little compulsion to overcome this disadvantage because we are not the primary buyers of our own health care. The current position is untenable, and its in our interest to influence change with the free market. There are models we can build off, and in the future, it seems likely that patient-advocates will possess the medical knowledge and fiduciary responsibility to allow their clients to decrease their personal costs and increase their quality of life despite a broken system, beating the path down good health reform. Ive called this new industry FutureHealth in my own thinking, but I dont like the way that sounds. Can you suggest a better name in the comments?
