On this episode of Shiftshapers Podcast, we continue our conversation with Dr. Robert Graboyes, Senior Research Fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, about the economics of health care and why both sides are losing the debate.

Join us as we discuss the reasons why traditional economic principles have worked differently in health care and what is happening (and needs to happen) to move us toward the frontier. Tune in to discover what Bob believes needs to happen in the United States in order to fix our health care system in a way that will help provide better care to more people at a lower cost, year after year. Don’t miss this engaging conclusion of our conversation with one of the nations preeminent healthcare-focused economists!

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • Why most metrics in health care have been focused in demand.
  • How much of the overall problem is due to seeing this as a “demand” rather than a “supply” issue.
  • How innovation in health care currently happens in the U.S. and why that system is broken.
  • The examples of countries that we can learn from to help fix our health care.
  • What we can learn from WWII Pacific operations.
