Opinion: U.S. healthcare system has almost worst of all worlds

CNN World, April 15, 2013
Fareed Zakaria speaks with Steven Brill, founder of Court TV and The American Lawyer magazine, and David Goldhill, author of 'Catastrophic Care: How American Health Care Killed My Father ? and How We Can Fix It,' about the problems with America's health care system. How would you change it? Goldhill: Well, what I'm seeking is a balance, right? What we've done is all the way in this direction, in fact, further than almost any country on Earth, believe it or not, in reducing the amount of skin consumers have in the game. But the problem isn't just money. The problem is the way the health care sectors compete now?we have a non-functioning price system in health care. Prices are not cost. They never have been.
