Island Health Care

To teach the key concepts of economics, many teachers have used life on a desert island as a means of simplification. I have found this “Crusoe economics” very helpful as a way of illustrating concepts to others. It’s helpful to remove the complexities of money from economics so that real issues can be examined in a isolation.

So, I was delighted to find an essay that uses this technique to examine the economics of health care and health insurance. It certainly clarifies a lot of things by removing distractions, especially the distraction of money.
