Mises U 2011

Canadian Medicare as a Model for the United States

Ronald Hamowy

Recorded at Mises University 2011. Includes an introduction by Joseph T. Salerno. 

In this 42-minute talk, Canadian historian and political scientist Ronald Hamowy discusses: a brief history of the Canadian healthcare system; the roots of its popularity among Canadians; how it is financed; the many unseen costs of the system, such as long wait times, a declining number of doctors, fewer hospital beds, and a lack of availability of various diagnostic tools such as PET scans.
