Right To Shop: The Next Big Thing In Health Care
Sovereign Solutions Editor’s Note:
The next big thing is SHOPPING?
I have nothing but respect for the featured article and the author. In fact, the piece is good and deserves reading by many more people. However, it does deserve thought, this idea that something so basic requires a reboot, a reawakening to something quite important.
A reawakening to what?
A reawakening to the power of PRICE DISCOVERY in markets.
Without price discovery, and its necessary end product and factor [factors of production and service delivery] customer shopping and discernment and choice in regards to quality and price, we can expect nothing less than the out of control healthcare markets and their fake insurance plans!
Without prices and concurrent customer shopping you can expect BIG, FAT RUBE GOLDBERG SYSTEMS leaching off from you. And, as with now, instead of price discovery, you instead get price propaganda or what amounts to hieroglyphics to you and me!
Such is the case right now generally–we cannot make out prices at best or are absolutely misled at worst.
However, with more people like you knowing the power of shopping and demanding it, while disregarding the fake insurance scam, we may yet achieve rational, high quality and low cost healthcare markets.
