Interesting Discussions on U.S. Health Care

Earlier this year I read Overtreated by Shannon Brownlee and Healthy Competition by Michael Tanner and Michael Cannon. I was therefore, pleasantly surprised to come across and listen to two online discussions on U.S. health care that touched on some of same issues. First, Inside-Out Documentaries did an interesting piece on the shortage of primary care physicians called "The Doctor Can't See You Now." Second, Arnold Kling discusses his book, The Crisis of Abundance, in this podcast and includes interesting responses from Jason Furman and Sebastian Mallaby. Both are well worth your time.

Update: Here is Arnold Kling discussing his health care research with Russ Roberts on EconTalk. Also on EconTalk discussing health care policy is Henry Aaron of the Brookings Institution.
