Universal health care, a system in which the government guarantees each citizen a certain level of medical care, is considered by many an ideal. In countries that have it, medicine is said to be cheaper, of better quality and available to everyone. This talk by Ayn Rand Institute analyst Rituparna Basu explains the alleged ideal of universal health care and then challenges it.
This talk was recorded on July 8, 2015, at the Objectivist Summer Conference 2015 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
