Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A deliberate policy of fucking over the little people drives health care inflation.

Information isn't relevant, because it's not a proper market, it's an oligopoly with huge and very aggressive players who aren't subject to oversight or useful regulation.

The insurance companies are in the annual dividends business, not the health care business. Their only interest in health care is when it distracts from profits.

And while it's been a singularly American tragedy so far, we have our own proponents of exactly the same scam in the UK, who are pushing 'patient choice' as a substitute for high quality free primary care.
