A hot topic in today’s news is the rising cost of health care and how we, as a country can provide health coverage. Is health care a right or choice? Do you believe health care should be regulated and government funded? Or do you believe health care should be provided by the private sector and allow competition to bring down the cost of health care. In addition, what are some viable alternatives to this problem? What implications might these alternatives have with respect to other individuals? Please include the market structures and governments role in the health care industry (think about unit three and the market structure i.e… pure competition, monopoly etc..).
