Stephen Bezruchka on Dying Younger Than We Should

Stephen Bezruchka - Dying Younger Than We Should (lecture)

Over and over U.S. citizens are told,” We have the best health care system in the world.” That would be great if it were true but the facts, baldly stated, don’t support the claim. Not only is it far and away the most expensive system, the U.S. spends half the world’s health bill, it fails to produce outstanding outcomes. For example, in one basic index, all of us in this country die younger than we should. A really healthy society does not have the radical disparities in wealth and income the U.S., one hesitates to use the word, “enjoys.” One in seven Americans are officially in poverty, the highest levels in decades. Evidence demonstrates that people in more egalitarian societies have healthier and happier lives.

A Market Abolitionist Argues for Cap-&-Trade

program date: 
Mon, 07/25/2011

Bill and Robin Hahnel start by talking about why he opposes markets when central to economic systems, advocating participatory economic planning, even in the case of so-called market-socialism, which Bill succinctly c competetively extracting profits to work. Robin points out that markets reward people for working against one another (he calls it anti-solidaristic behavior). However, Robin thinks there's a case to be made for the market approach to addressing global warming known as "cap-and-trade" - capping carbon emissions and then trading the derivatives. One key element is revising the Kyoto protocols to put carbon-emission caps on ALL countries.
