OT -- History of American Medical Insurance

Post by TruckerRon » October 8th, 2018, 10:48 am

This article is from a talk given by a historian who focuses of financial and economic issues in the US. He filled in a few gaps in my knowledge of how the US got into the mess it is regarding the cost of healthcare, particularly in identifying which groups lobbied for/against changes to the system as it came together over the past century.
