tjohnson Posted October 10, 2009 Share Posted October 10, 2009 Because of the current controversy going on in the US about healthcare I thought it would be timely to ask this question. United States has historically been the best example of individual capitalism in the world and this included medicine. My question is, if individual capitalism (as opposed to social capitalism) is so good, as the proponents of Objectivism claim, then why has the healthcare system got into such bad shape in the US? My position is that the profit motive cannot solve all of mankind's problems - there are some issues that are better dealt with by other means.
