Healthcare: A Crisis of Artificial Scarcity

By Kevin Carson

“In healthcare, subsidies to the most costly and high-tech forms of medicine crowd out cheaper and decentralized alternatives, so that cheaper forms of treatment – even when perfectly adequate from the consumer’s standpoint – become less and less available. There are powerful institutional pressures for ever more radical monopoly. At the commanding heights of the centralized state and centralized corporate economy – so interlocked as to be barely distinguishable – problems are analyzed and solutions prescribed from the perspective of those who benefit from radical monopoly.”
