Ealth Economics: Healthcare as a Right or Privilege
Write a cohesive essay that address the following:
1.) Briefly discuss your position on whether healthcare in the U.S. should be considered a right or privilege.
2.) If you believe it be considered a right, how does or could regulation help ensure that is treated as such? If you believe it should be a privilege, how does or could competition influence health care delivery in reference to this view?
3.) In support of your position, describe one or two more ways in which you think the government has either over regulated or under regulated the healthcare industry. Specify what the problem is with the existing situation and how you think it should be fixed. Provide a rationale and cite evidence for your argument.
Be sure to ground your argument using economic concepts.
