Markets can work to improve health-care

In a new book, Healthy, Wealthy and Wise, authors Cogan, Hubbard, and Kessler argue, "The problem is not that market forces cannot work in health care, rather, public policies have precented health care markets from functioning properly."

That's precisely why the Canada Health Act needs to be reformed, to allow market forces to play a greater role in the delivery of health care. That said, any increase in market forces should not be accompained by greater government intervention.
