Physician Debate at Stanford

The Federal Government or Free Market: Which Can Offer the Most Compassionate and Effective Health-Care Plan for America?

Four physicians will debate health care policy. I am thrilled to see compassion as the center of the debate. Proponents of greater government involvement in health care argue that it is necessary and right on the basis of caring for the disadvantaged. These arguments completely evade the facts that coercion is not compassionate, and central planning is not effective. This should be a lively and interesting debate.
