As I blogged last fall, I had the opportunity to participate in a Fred Friendly Seminar on the future of health care reform. Hosted by NYU law professor Arthur Miller, the program featured — in addition to me — AARP CEO Bill Novelli, former U.S. Comptroller General Dave Walker, Washington Post Bureau Chief T.R. Reid, and Harvard Business School professor Regina Herzlinger, along with family doctors, business owners, hospital administrators, and health policy experts in a lively debate over how to control health care costs, expand access, and improve the quality of care. That debate will be broadcast by PBS the week of January 18. For information on when it can be seen in your area, click here.
Featuring Benjamin H. Friedman, Research Fellow in Defense and Homeland Security Studies, Cato Institute; Spencer Ackerman, Senior Writer, WIRED Magazine; and Julian Sanchez, Research Fellow, Cato Institute; moderated by Laura Odato, Director of Government Affairs, Cato Institute.

More Bang for Your Buck
The Cato Institute tops a new measure of think tank performance in the United States, according to a recent report. Cato bested all other U.S. think tanks in the main category of “Aggregate Profile per Dollar Spent.” “I’m grateful to the Center for Global Development for showing that Cato gives its sponsors something I wish government gave more of to taxpayers: bang for the buck,” said Cato CEO John Allison.
