BloggingHeads: Brownlee vs. Cannon

If you’re like most Cato@Liberty readers, you often ask yourself, “Self, what kind of artwork does Michael Cannon have on the walls of his office?” Thanks to the folks at blog​ging​heads​.tv, not only can you find the answer, but you can learn an awful lot about medicine, health insurance, and health care reform. 


This week, BloggingHeads hosted a discussion between New America Foundation senior fellow Shannon Brownlee and me. Brownlee is the author of the quite excellent book Overtreated: Why Too Much Medicine Is Making Us Sicker and Poorer. (Disclaimer: I disagree with many of the conclusions in Overtreated, else we wouldn’t have much to debate.) Brownlee was kind enough to plug my book, too.
