Re: Health Care is a Commodity?

Jonah and Steve, the fact underlying your back-and-forth, the fact that health insurance is a service and as such has to be thought about at least in large part in economic terms, is actually at the bottom of a lot of the disagreement between liberals and conservatives on health care.

Avik Roy, in an essay called “Health Care and the Profit Motive,” unpacks that disagreement a bit in the new issue of National Affairs.

Yuval Levin is the director of social, cultural, and constitutional studies at the American Enterprise Institute and the editor of National Affairs.
