  1. Neil Huff says:

    The older tried and true method of health care in China depended on a family physician maintaining the health of the client and his family. The doctor received a monthly stipend only as long as everyone in the family was well. When one of the family became ill, the stipend to the doctor stopped until the patient was on their feet again. A most sensible system: both the doctor and the client had parallel interests in keeping the family healthy. In our system, the doctors make most of their money when the client is near death. In other words their interests are in perfect opposition. Somehow this sounds very VERY wrong.
