In June, the President’s Council on Bioethics held a meeting in Chicago to explore questions related to reform of American health care provision. I was asked to present the case for a tax-based reform approach, which I took to mean a reform plan built on consumer choice and market competition.

It was a lively discussion which went beyond the usual policy-intensive focus of most discussion of health care reform. The full transcript is available here, and the slides I used for my presentation are available here.
