Welcome to the Episode 3 of Civil Discourse hosted by Todd Furniss.
On Episode 3, Todd Furniss interviews John C. Goodman, renowned economist and President & CEO of The Goodman Institute for Public Policy Research.
In his 2012 book Priceless: Curing the Healthcare Crisis, Goodman asserts that empowering both patients and caregivers to control healthcare decisions produces greater patient satisfaction at substantially lower costs. The book emphasizes the importance that patients, payers, and providers each operate according to economic incentives that encourage them to consider both the costs and benefits of care, innovate to improve outcomes and lower costs, and provide subsidies that do not arbitrarily benefit one group (like workers at companies that provide insurance) at the expense of other groups (like workers at companies that do not).
