Unintended Consequences in the Process of Socializing Health Care

The movement towards socialized medicine is strong but widely misunderstood. Many ordinary people see health care as a right and complain that it is too expensive. Some economists also see problems with the existing health care system and propose public-sector alternatives. One serious problem with those who want socialized medicine is that they fail to see the problems that already exist with governmental involvement in health care, writes D.W. MacKenzie.

This audio Mises Daily is narrated by Floy Lilley.
