Professor Hoppe on Socialized Health Care

  • Democracy: The God that Failed by Hoppe

"With the socialization of the health care system through institutions such as Medicaid and Medicare and the regulation of the insurance industry (by restricting an insurer's right of refusal: to exclude any individual risk as uninsurable, and discriminate freely, according to actuarial methods, between different group risks) a monstrous machinery of wealth and income redistribution at the expense of responsible individuals and low-risk groups in favor of irresponsible actors and high-risk groups has been put in motion."

—Hans-Hermann Hoppe, Democracy: The God That Failed
