Abstract

Why should the United States engage in broad reform of its health care? Because it must. When should health care reform begin? Yesterday would be best, but today for sure. And how should reform be done? It should focus on continuous incremental changes to the cultural, legal, and regulatory environment that improve the capacity of health care markets.

Keywords: Health care reform, health care spending
