A few posts ago I wrote about Andy Kessler, one of the really interesting observers that I’ve come across lately. I first learned about Kessler by reading his book The End of Medicine, which argues that advances in technology will radically change our healthcare system. Not right away, but eventually.
Shortly after reading the book I learned that Kessler has a blog (who doesn’t?) where he continues to write about our healthcare system. Just the other day he posted a wonderful email exchange that he had with Milton Friedman about the U.S. healthcare system. Friedman was not so optimistic about the possibility of change, although he did acknowledge some novel insights by Kessler.
I highly recommend both Kessler’s book, as well as the email exchange between he and Friedman.
