For the most part I found this very long Time article by Steven Brill about the problems with American health care cost to be interesting. It did correctly highlight that the biggest problem is that Americans are overcharged for almost everything related to medicine, but I was thrown off by his bizarre insistence this doesn’t include doctors. After making a pretty strong case for Medicare-for-all Brill argues that it won’t work because that would somehow turn all doctors into paupers.

I think the economists are making it all up as they go along. I’m not sure any group of people can be so consistently wrong on so many levels.

In the Spring of 1978, Afghan minister of social Affairs, Anahita Ratebzad, wrote, “Privileges which women, by right, must have are equal education, job security, health services, and free time to rear a healthy generation for building the future of the country … Educating and enlightening women is now the subject of close government attention.” Soon afterward, the United States spent about a billion dollars to help keep her vision from coming to ligh

Yesterday, Time magazine published a disgusting screed telling us all to calm down about the hundreds of millions of gallons of crude oil BP has released into the Gulf of Mexico and then even sent the author to push his drivel on Hardball.

Sean Carroll’s From Eternity to Here sets out to explain the nature of time, particularly what’s known as the “arrow of time,” the fact that we experience time as a flow in only one direction, from the past into the future. This is a daunting prospect, as just setting up the question requires a discussion of just about every important physics discovery of the 19th and 20th centuries. Carroll manages to make it all readable, though, and whether or not you end up agreeing with his preferred approach, you’ll leave the book with a clearer sense of the problems and the physics involved in the nature of time.
