Re: MEGAN!

You do realize that older people are regularly rejected for expensive life saving treatments under universal systems? There is only so much health care and giving it to those who only have 20-30...

Re: Our Broken System (Matthew Yglesias & Megan McArdle)

Welfare reform, free trade, abandoning health care reform all dispute the typical...

Re: Interesting Times (Noam Scheiber & Megan McArdle)

Who is excusing George Bush and Ronald Regan debts? They screwed up, and Obama is screwing up 5 times worse, and trying to blame it on his predacessors. He runs the ship. He owns whatever happens...

Re: Interesting Times (Noam Scheiber & Megan McArdle)

Was there any point to watching this diavog?

It's pretty obvious the bailouts, stimulus, and expanding financial regulations will ultimately do more harm than good.

It's sad we have to...

Re: Innovation, markets, and health

I don't see your point. You could be making all this up. Your language gives me no reason to have any respect for anything you say.

Your ethuggery is amusing. Perhaps if you had spent less time spamming the comments to the blogs you could have gotten a job and helped pay for his care.

Re: Question for Megan re: NY

70% of Venture Capital spending takes place in Silicon Valley.

I wasn't aware that Silicon Valley had been relocated to New York.

I think business figured this out before Megan.

Re: Innovation, markets, and health

How is this noticeably different than buying a house? Few people will buy more than a couple houses in their lifetimes. What about the evil real estate agents? How ever will we cope?

Patents

To most libertarians, patents are generally frowned upon. Blaming free market capitalism for over priced drugs is a bit of a stretch. Patent laws are typically designed to give monopoly power to...

It's called Monopsony

Monopsony: One buyer/consumer, many sellers/producers.

In Monopsony the buyer rather than the seller has market power.

According to classic microeconomic theory, under monopsony, the buyer...

Re: Obama Disillusionment Edition (Joshua Cohen & Brink Lindsey)

Re: Obama Disillusionment Edition

You don't think having a dealer next door with the same cars with a warranty and factory incentives lowers the relative value of his vehicles?

Re: Economic Throwdown Edition
