Idle thoughts of a relatively libertarian Republican in Cambridge, MA, and whomever he invites. Mostly political.

A British newspaper, by way of complaining about some British health care results, provides some comparisons of health care results in different countries. As much as our health care market is broken, it's not doing so bad, at least by these measures. (Which isn't to say things couldn't be improved, but is to say that we aren't in a situation in which trying idiotic changes that entrench the worst failures of the current system can be justified — if anything ever can — with "we've got to try something".)
