Free Markets and the Good Doctor

The next time a physician professes belief in free market health care, ask if doctors should have to have a license to practice medicine. Ask, are you willing to give up the advantages government gives you because with those, there is no free market in medicine. What the physician free market advocate wants is government given advantages for himself and all of the stresses of free markets for you.
“For the public good”, the health care industry is taken out of the free market system and given pricing power and other advantages. Buyers of healthcare services are still operate in a free market setting.
So when national healthcare is suggested, it is not being offered as an alternative to free market healthcare. National healthcare is offered as an alternative to corrupt system where doctors have a complete economic advantage over patients.
Obamacare is wrongly perceived as socialized medicine. It is not.
Conservatives need not fear that socialized medicine has taken hold in the country. Obamacare is just more of the same corrupt system they have supported all along. It has just mutated and the part of the industry has the biggest advantage has shifted.
So, Republicans, you are not fighting socialized medicine. Democrat, you didn’t get socialized medicine. You both got new and improved ways to fleece patients.
Do we need true socialized medicine? Free market healthcare would be better but genuine socialized medicine would be an improvement over what we have today.

About Fantasy Free Economics

James Quillian independent scholar,free market economist,and teacher of natural law. Who is James Quillian? Certainly I am nobody special, Just a tireless academic and deep thinker. Besides that, I have broken the code with respect to economics and political science. Credentials? Nothing you would be impressed with. I am not a household name. It is hard to become famous writing that virtually no one in the country is genuinely not in touch with reality. But, if I did not do that, there would be no point in my broking the broken the code. If you read the blog, it is easy to see that there are just a few charts, no math and no quantitative analysis. That is not by accident. Given what I know, those items are completely useless. I do turn out to be highly adept at applying natural law. Natural law has predominance over any principles the social science comes up. By virtue of understanding natural law, I can debunk, in just a few sentences , any theory that calls for intervention by a government. My taking the time to understand the ins and outs of Keynes General Theory is about like expecting a chemistry student to completely grasp all that the alchemists of the middle ages thought they understood in efforts to turn base metals into goal. Keynesian theory clearly calls for complete objectivity. Government can only make political decisions. Keynesian techniques call for economic decisions. So, why go any further with that? Fantasy Free Economics is in a sense a lot like technical analysis. Technical analysis began with the premise that it was impossible to gain enough information studying fundamentals to gain a trading advantage. Study the behavior of investors instead. Unlike technical analysis, I don't use technical charts. What I understand are the incentives of different people and entities active in the economics arena. For example, there is no such thing as an incentive to serve with life in the aggregate. In the aggregate, only self interest applies. It is routinely assumed otherwise. That is highly unappealing. But, I am sorry. That is the way it is. I can accept that because I am genuinely in touch with reality. Step one in using Fantasy Free Economics is for me to understand just how little I really know. A highly credentialed economist may know 100 times what I do based on the standard dogma. Compare the knowledge each of us has compared to all there is to know and we both look like we know nothing at all. There is always more than we don't know than what we do know. I am humble enough to present myself on that basis. Why? That is the way it is. I am not bad at math. I have taught math. What I understand is when to use it and when to rely on something else. Math is useless in natural law so I don't use it. While others look at numbers, I am busy understanding the forces in nature that makes their numbers what they are. That gives me a clear advantage.
