The most obvious statement we can make about the US health care system is that it’s a mess. It’s complicated, expensive, and rarely delivers what patients expect.
The unserious answer to how you fix the health care system is to blow it up and start over. As the largest sector of the economy that hires the most people, there are far too many interests in keeping the system just as it is. The solution will have to come from entrepreneurs, employers, and patients.
