I admit. I worry about what I’m about to convey. Because we’ve been screwed before.
Today’s read is from Joel Zinberg, M.D., J.D., a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, an associate clinical professor of surgery at the Icahn Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, and the director of Paragon Health Institute’s Public Health and American Well-being Initiative. He was general counsel and senior economist in 2017–19 at the Council of Economic Advisers, where he specialized in health policy. I include that lengthy bio because my guess is he knows what the Hell he’s talking about.
Here’s an excerpt from his piece:
