It analyzes the 2010 health care reform (ObamaCare) in light of the economics and history of health care finance, and relates this to the Dodd-Frank Act and the causes of the 2008 financial crisis, our experiences with other regulatory regimes since the New Deal, the pros and cons of markets, regulation, single-payer systems and related pertinent questions in economic theory bearing upon the subject, including market failures, behavioral economics, the limits of rationality, and more.
