Why does healthcare exist?

Victor Joecks

Far too often, when people discuss healthcare, they ask: Why isn’t healthcare affordable and accessible to all?

In my new commentary over on the NPRI homepage, I argue that the question we should be asking is: Why does healthcare exist at all?

The first question assumes that there’s a supply of healthcare somewhere, and if we could just find it or stop the wealthy from hoarding it, healthcare would be as free and accessible as sunshine.

If you don’t believe me, or if you’re just too lazy to read, check out this video of MEP Daniel Hannan talking about the British socialized medicine experience.
