For more see my reply to you in the Posner blog. And remember, that is entirely different from providing medical services to those that don’t have them today. So let’s both get smart about what we argue and stop talking past each other.

Nice post. I was checking continuously this blog and I am impressed! Extremely helpful information specially the last part :) I care for such information much. I was seeking this particular info for a very long time. Thank you and best of luck.

I think it is relatively uncontroversial to say, the desirability of screening for something is unrelated to income. That is, in our society, we do not value the health of someone who is wealthy at many more multiples than someone who is wealthy.


For many years I was a very senior executive in the private sector and trust me, we much preferred government regulation than competition. For large investors the former is predictable and manageable. Competition can kill you.

In fact, my membership in an oversight committee is as a user, and, yes, my company, it is actually my ex-company since I am now retired, does listen to us.

in spite of this we are in the middle of negotiations that could result in their actually having to increase their contributions to the plan. On our side we continuously make suggestions on how to further control costs, including measures to reduce the free rider effect.

Patty Bogle and her late husband, Chris, built Bogle Vineyards from 18 acres of grapes into one of the best inexpensive wine producers in the world. The company ships more than 1.2 million cases of wine annually, and Wine Business Monthly ranked Bogle as the country's 14th-largest winery.

I still much prefer private solutions. I would add a large dose of values, which, as I said in my entry in the other blog, I very much don't want government providing. In fact, unless we can somehow restore traditional good values I am pessimistic for the future of the country.

There are plenty of highly experienced travel journalists who may already have written for leading publications who regularly find their suggestions for features rejected or ignored. Now more than ever.

Interesting post. The benefits of this medical screening will depend on the seriousness of the disease and what can be seen from early detection. Thanks for sharing.

Rosetta Stone

The benefits of screening depend on the seriousness of the disease, and the gain from early detection. The latter in turn depend crucially on the treatment success when a disease is detected early compared to when it is detected at a later stage. For example

This gain has to be adjusted for the probability of finding a serious problem since the lower that probability, the less the expected gain from extensive screening.

There are many people and companies with high standards left. That is why despite the pessimism I express above I did suggest in an early entry that you look at the positives and cheer up!

But, I do not believe one can say that the health and well-being of the rich is more valuable than the health and well-being for the poor. Not unless you are some sort of sociopath. .

There are very many medical parlors in the city that are not operated ...Chiropractic services are also a popular choice of many.

Thanks for the cool badgees! When do we find out who the Petties nominees are???


CAME TO KNEW THAT-Although it is generally thought that widespread screening for prevention of diseases is a priority, costs must be considered to establish if over-screening for some medical problems could be happening.A leading specialist has launched a broadside against the medical screening industry for peddling unproved procedures that cause more harm ...i dont know much but i enjoyed reading this.

That was my thought,too.
