Episode 21:43 If You Live In Alabama, You Need To Know About This Joe is a good, hard-working man in excellent health. He loves his job and has performed it faithfully for over 10 years. Joe gets along well with all of co-workers and his supervisor consistently gives his work performance high reviews. Unfortunately, as of October 27, 2021 Joe will no longer be able to work at his current job. NOT because he doesn't want to. NOT because his work performance has suffered. NOT because his supervisor and co-workers want to get rid of him. NOT because his company is experiencing financial difficulties. Instead, Joe will no longer be able to work at his job because he has chosen NOT to get the Covid vaccine. No longer able to support his wife and children, nor provide them with health insurance, because of a decision he should have every right to make. Let me say that again: Joe - a hard working, healthy man - will no longer be able to work at the job he has performed flawlessly for over ten years simply because he has chosen NOT to get the Covid vaccine. That's ridiculous. But it's true. You see, Joe works at Austal, a ship building company located in Mobile, Alabama. And, since Austal has contracts to do work for the Federal Government, they are being mandated to have all their workers vaccinated. This Federal mandate is not only an overreach of authority, it applies to individuals such as Joe, who ALREADY have had COVID-19 and, as such, HAVE a natural immunity against the virus. But the Federal Government doesn't care. They want to force Joe, and millions of other Americans like Joe, to get the COVID vaccine AGAINST THEIR WILL. It is, in my opinion, a form of tyranny. Fortunately, there are groups of individuals throughout the country fighting back. People defending the rights of Americans to choose what they feel is best for their health. One such group is Health Freedom Alabama. Health Freedom Alabama is made up of individuals who are standing up for the rights of ALL Alabamians with regard to medical freedom. To this end, they have put together a bill, HB31, that fights back against vaccine mandates. A bill designed to protect hard-working individuals like Joe from being unfairly discriminated against. On this episode we sit down with Stephanie Durnin, the co-founder of Health Freedom Alabama and let her explain to us what HB31 is… how it came about… WHY it is so important… and what WE can do, as citizens, to help make it a law.

Today's show rundown: Pete Buttigieg says that the incredible economic policies of the Biden administration have kept us from the jaws, of the teeth if a recession. What a crock. Washington always has a one size fits all mentality. They have no credibility, because like with COVID, they will not count people that have had it, and how they are protected even better than a vaccinated person. One size fits all, is just unreasonable, totally and completely clueless. The Federal Government has three REAL purposes, to maintain a standing Army, Courts, law enforcement branch to protect the citizenry. Mark has come to the conclusion that he is part of 2 of the most hated minority groups in the country. It is now OK to HATE "these people who are abusing you"...being in the top 1% of earners. Also, as an unvaccinated person, Mark is not allowed to go to a restaurant in NYC or California. Lightfoot claims the Chicago police are not honoring the oath they swore, by NOT wanting to get the vaccine. This administration is just trying to divide us under the banner of unity. We are seeing State sponsored bigotry, against certain groups of Americans. We meet our guest Susanne Gallagher from Parents Rights and Education, who is trying to fight back against the Marxist situation with school boards now days. In Idaho in Coeur d'Alene Idaho, just recently where parents were invited, parents lined up. But the board scheduled the meeting on a Friday at 1PM. How many people did they really want to come. We need to stop systemic complacency, we need to pay attention. These people on the school boards have overplayed their hand, they have shown how little they think of Parents how dim they think they are. They don't think that anyone besides them knows anything about raising kids. The School Boards are now admitting that they are not Institutions of Learning, they are now Social Service organizations. Parent are waking up to the fact that when you drop your kids off at school, many of these places are not teaching your kids the same lessons that you would want them to teach. We have to stop this at the local public school levels. We need to elect people who WE want to represent us at the local school board level. The Left has become so drunk with power, thinking that they are untouchable, and boy, have they awoken a sleeping giant with this schools vs Parents issue. https://worldmission.cc/donate-humanitarianoutreach/ Give H2Max a try and let us know what you think: buyh2max.com Help us bring you the best content possible.

Bennet, a democrat from Colorado, has been working to increase support for families since he introduced the American Family Act in Congress in 2017. Now he wants to make the Credit, which pays most American families $250 or $300/child each month, permanent. He says it will cut childhood poverty in half. Still, Republicans reject an effort to extend it saying it's a waste of taxpayer money and costs American jobs.

Hear from a Rhode Island congressman about how the federal government is responding to COVID-19. The pandemic moved quickly and impacted every part of people's lives. How did the State's congressional delegation balance the importance of thorough public health measures and the need to maintain a healthy economy? How quickly did federal support get to states, municipalities, and individuals?  Our guest this week is Congressman David Cicilline. Congressman Cicilline is in his sixth term representing the first congressional district of Rhode Island in the US House of Representatives. He chairs the House Antitrust Subcommittee and the Congressional LGBTQ+ Equality Caucus, and is Vice Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.  Co-hosts Dr. Jim McDonald and Dr. Philip Chan ask the Congressman about the impact COVID-19 has had on the economy, his opinion on the nationwide vaccine rollout, and about the ongoing battle against public health misinformation. Cicilline also talks about the programs that were established to support small businesses, unemployed individuals, and families in need throughout the pandemic.  “COVID-19 revealed what has existed for a long time in this country in terms of housing inequality, health care inequities, economic inequality,” Cicilline said. What can the federal government do to address the pandemic's long-lasting impacts and support Americans through recovery? Download this week's episode to hear more.

The Federal Government is Getting Creative in Regulating Technology

The theme of this episode is a surge of creativity in the Biden administration as it searches for ways to regulate cybersecurity and cryptocurrency without new legislative authority. Paul Rosenzweig lays out the Department of Homeland Security's entries in the creativity sweepstakes: New (and frankly pretty modest) cybersecurity directives to the rail and air industry plus a much more detailed (and potentially problematic) set of requirements for pipeline companies. Matthew Heiman describes a Justice Department plan for enforcing cybersecurity rules for federal contractors that should chill the hearts of management: an initiative that raises the prospect of whistleblower suits under the False Claims Act for failure to disclose breaches to the government. I suggest that this means the notoriously short tenure of the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) at large companies will now come with a built-in retirement compensation package. Creativity in regulating cryptocurrency was signaled both by the White House, which is working on a broader and more coordinated regulatory approach and by the Justice Department, which is planning a major criminal investigative approach to the industry. Nick Weaver gives us the details. Paul covers a remarkably creative assertion of The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) jurisdiction over a Chinese purchase of Magnachip, a company with virtually no ties to the United States. Despite having no obvious skin in the game, CFIUS insisted on a CFIUS filing under President Trump and then vetoed the deal under President Biden. I suggest that the claim of extraterritorial jurisdiction, which in other circumstances might have annoyed South Korea, is in this case a good way for South Korea to avoid taking heat from China.  Paul explains why the Facebook outage was a much bigger deal than Americans realized. If you were living in Costa Rica, the loss of Facebook and WhatsApp, he says, could have greatly complicated every aspect of daily life, including calls for emergency services. Paul digs into the return of “hactivism”—not to mention skepticism about hactivism. I marshal the evidence that the Pandora Papers were the result of hacks, not leaks—and roast the newspapers feasting on the hack for their utter hypocrisy. Hey, Marty Baron! We haven't forgotten that after the Democratic National Committee (DNC) leaks of 2016, you said “Before reporting on the release of hacked or leaked information, there should be a conversation with senior editors about the newsworthiness of the information, its authenticity and whether we can determine its provenance... If a decision is made to publish a story about hacked or leaked information, our coverage should emphasize what we know—or don't know—about the source of the information and how that may fit into a foreign or domestic influence operation. Our stories should prominently explain what we know about the full context of the information we are presenting, including its origins and the motivations of the source, including whether it appears to be an effort to distract from another development.” We're still looking for that “full context” in the Pandora Papers or the Epik leaks. Nick fills us in on Facebook's extreme reaction to the creation of a tool that allows users to escape the News Feed. I discover that I've completely missed the central Facebook experience because I semi-inadvertently disabled the news feed. Paul offers some surprising news about the limits of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Turns out, it's not that good even at some of the things it should be superb at, like radiology reviews. Nick and I explore Google's acceptance of warrants based on search terms. He thinks that this has gone on under the radar for some time because both government and Google think the public reaction will be bad for business.  Finally, in two quick hits: I brag about the proof that I'm one of the 14,000 Gmail users that the Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation (GRU) fears most: Google caught the Russian spy agency trying to phish me with a doctored Word document.  And Matthew reveals what the Russian SolarWinds hackers were looking for. From all the SolarWinds bad news, we extract this bit of good news: U.S. sanctions are really getting under Putin's skin. So much so that sanctions are among Russian spies' top collection priorities.

Today, Indigenous Peoples Day is being observed in more than a dozen states. Maryland isn't among them. But the movement to ditch the traditional Columbus Day holiday is growing, in favor of celebrating the unique contributions Native Americans have made, and continue to make to our nation. Several cities in Maryland have replaced Columbus Day with the holiday to honor Native American history, including Baltimore, Washington DC, and more than 130 other cities, counties and school districts across the country do too. On Friday, President Biden issued the first ever Presidential Proclamation on Indigenous People's Day, which was widely seen as a major stride towards re-directing the focus of the federal Columbus Day holiday towards recognition of Native Peoples. It said, in part, “our Nation celebrates the invaluable contributions and resilience of Indigenous peoples, recognizes their inherent sovereignty, and commits to honoring the Federal Government's trust and treaty obligations to Tribal Nations.” Columbus Day is a federal holiday established by Congress. The President also issued a Columbus Day Proclamation, in which he acknowledged “the painful history of wrongs and atrocities that many European explorers inflicted on Tribal Nations and Indigenous communities.

The Quicky speaks to an expert in infectious diseases to find out more about the drug, and others that are already being administered to consider what the best options are for helping us to recover when we've been diagnosed with coronavirus.  CREDITS  Host/Producer: Claire Murphy Executive Producer: Siobhán Moran-McFarlane Audio Producer: Ian Camilleri Guest: Associate Professor Sanjaya Senanayake - Infectious Diseases Physician and Associate Professor of Medicine at the Australian National University's Medical School Subscribe to The Quicky at... https://mamamia.com.au/the-quicky/ CONTACT US Got a topic you'd like us to cover?

If you've been following the Real Estate columns in the media recently it would have been hard to miss stories about mortgage stress and rising interest rates. Of course, it's the same property pessimist chasing a headline giving biased views based on the preconception that our property markets are about to crash and backed up by very small sample sizes of data. So in today's show, Dr. Andrew Wilson and I will discuss not just our views but those of the Reserve Bank – so at the end of our chat, you'll have a good idea about the direction of interest rates in the medium-term. We'll also discuss a comment by Assistant RBA Governor Luci Ellis who recently lashed out at the Federal Government suggesting negative gearing and Capital Gains Tax discounts essentially encourage speculative investment and are fuelling property price growth. Really! Now if you have been a subscriber to this podcast for a while or followed my blogs or YouTube videos, you'd know for the last 3 years I have recorded a weekly Property Insiders video chat with Dr. Andrew Wilson. And his assessment of and forecasts for our economy and property markets have been remarkably accurate so whether you're a beginning property investor or an experienced I'm sure you'll benefit from my chat with Andrew today which is the audio of one of our recent Property Insider videos. I'll leave a link in the show notes so you can see all the charts that support the information we'll talk about, but in general, that won't be necessary – Andrew explains his position well. I'll also be sharing my regular mindset message where I'll explain why being rich is a choice.  So welcome to today's show. Has unemployment really improved? Officially Australia's unemployment rate is at its lowest level in almost 13 years, despite half the country being in the grips of lockdown. However, these figures don't really reflect what's happening on the ground where things have been getting worse for Australian workers. The headline unemployment rate is no longer a good representation of the jobs market, falling in August despite workers doing it tough. As lockdowns were implemented, more Australians worked fewer, or no hours and underemployment rose. It's not surprising that the labour market took a beating as businesses closed their doors. In August, the participation rate dropped from 66 to 65.2 percent, with 211,188 fewer people in the labour force than in the June survey. On top of people simply ceasing looking for work, those in the workforce are seeing their hours drop, particularly in locked-down areas like Victoria and New South Wales. Hours worked nationally fell by 3.7 percent last month, though NSW bore the brunt of the losses, with hours worked down 13 percent since the lockdown started. Interestingly people working just one hour per week are technically classified as employed, even though clearly, they wouldn't consider that to be the case if you asked them. Rate hikes are further away than you think A number of the regular property pessimists are doing the rounds of the media chasing headlines telling anyone who is willing to listen that many Australians will fall into mortgage stress when interest rates rise and that this will occur sooner rather than later. However, Governor Lowe once again asserted that this won't happen any time soon. He said he finds it difficult to understand why the market is pricing in rate action 2022 and 2023 and confirmed that interest rate will only rise when inflation hits the target of between 2.5% to 3% and stays there for some time. Clearly, our rising house prices are not going to affect the RBA's interest rate decisions and Governor Lowe confirmed that house prices and housing affordability are not the domain of the RBA. Here's what causing our property boom. Assistant RBA Governor Luci Ellis recently lashed out at the Federal Government suggesting negative gearing and Capital Gains Tax discounts essentially encourage speculative investment and are fuelling property price growth. These interesting comments at a time when the number of investors is below historical averages, and the government has supported first home buyers to get into the market. Property Listings are rising Watch this week's Property Insider video as Dr. Andrew Wilson and I discuss the surge in listings of properties for sale that has suddenly occurred. It will be interesting to see how these extra properties for sale will affect property price growth, however as most sellers are also buyers, I see significant market depth ahead and higher prices at the end of this year.

Murray Sabrin's 7-Point Entrepreneurial Solution to the Medical Care Crisis

Mises Media

Play Episode Listen Later Sep 28, 2021


Entrepreneurs solve problems for customers. There are few problems bigger than the horribly perverse medical care system under which patients suffer in the US. The system has evolved over time, with the stimulus of bad decisions, bad actors, and bad incentives. Entrepreneurship can solve the system problem with specific actions at the component level, each of which are practical and do-able, and can interact to create a new outcome at the system level. Murray Sabrin has studied both the system and the component solutions, and he joins the Economics For Business podcast to enumerate his proposed actions. Key Takeaways and Actionable Insights Healthcare is a consumer good, and a consumer responsibility. Medical care is a provider proposition. Consumer sovereignty is a cornerstone concept in Austrian economic theory. Consumers determine what is produced as a result of their buying or not buying. Does this principle apply in healthcare? To answer requires us to differentiate between healthcare and medical care. Healthcare is an individual choice and a personal responsibility: we do everything we can to maintain a healthy lifestyle of eating and drinking, exercise and sound physical and mental health practices. In the internet age, there is plenty of knowledge available to help us in our decision-making. Medical care is what we turn to when sound healthcare proves to be insufficient to keep us off medication and out of hospital. How do consumers realize value from medical care providers? To do so is very challenging due to (among other barriers) price fixing, price opacity, price inflation, monopolistic and duopolistic market structures, the misuse of insurance, bureaucratic management, perverse incentives, government intervention, and barriers to entrepreneurial entry. Are there potential solutions in the face of this systemic dysfunction? Yes: solutions that come from the best countervailing source — entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurial Solution #1: Direct Primary Care — Restoring the doctor-patient relationship. Murray Sabrin recalled the $5 doctor visit of the past, characterized by a personal relationship with no bureaucracy or insurance forms. Entrepreneurs are now re-establishing that relationship via Direct Primary Care. DPC is retainer fee-based access to unlimited doctor visits, including office-based testing and additional services, with no insurance forms. DPC doctors have fewer patients in their practice and can consequently provide more time and attention. Stronger relationships are built, which is the essence of entrepreneurial value-generation. Entrepreneurial Solution #2: Transparent versus distorted pricing. Pricing is one of the most important bulwarks of free markets. In medical care, pricing is opaque to the point of invisibility, distorted, and inflated. It is unresponsive to the normal choice-based supply-demand mechanisms, and not indicative of value. Some entrepreneurs are acting to change these pricing conditions via what is termed fee-for-service: transparent pricing for specific services. An often-cited example is Surgery Center of Oklahoma, where specific prices for specific surgical services are openly posted on their website. Other members of the Free Market Medical Association provide similar price transparency. One of the results is revelatory price comparison: Murray told the story of a DPC practice patient who identified a 75% price reduction at Surgery Center of Oklahoma compared to a local South Florida hospital. Entrepreneurial Solution # 3: One stop shopping at local non-profit clinics. Murray described the launch and success of several non-profit local and regional clinics, including one for which he was the founding trustee. These are philanthropically established and funded local clinics with volunteer staff, providing a range of services. Equipment and pharmaceuticals may be fully or partially donated by the manufacturing companies. The combination of direct primary care doctors and specialists can make these clinics one-stop shopping solutions for patients seeking quality medical care. With a little philanthropic assistance, they could eliminate the need for Medicaid. Entrepreneurial Solution #4: Direct Contracting. Insurance companies purposefully inflate medical care prices to fund their business model. Murray told the story of a large (4-500 employees) company that contracted directly with a service that brought a vehicle with an MRI machine to the employers location, and charged $400 per MRI to the employees. The same vehicle was utilized by a nearby hospital that charged $6,000 for the same MRI. Direct contracting saved $5400 per unit cost, or 90%. Direct contracting has the potential to significantly reduce costs in the Medical Care system, while opening access and increasing convenience. Entrepreneurial Solution #5: The 3-tier household medical care budget system. Murray has a well-constructed and eminently practical household medical care budget system. There's a version for families with at least on member in employment and an alternative for those on Medicare today. There are three elements: Direct Primary Care for a monthly fee, covering unlimited office visits and routine tests.A Health Savings Account to cover costs of specialists, prescription drugs, medical equipment, major tests and brief hospitalizations.Catastrophic insurance coverage for major operations and hospitalizations and long term care. Greater detail is provided in Murray's book, Universal Medical Care From Conception To End Of Life. Download our corresponding PDF, which features an adapted table from Murray's book: Mises.org/E4B_137_PDF In a system of personal responsibility, we would all manage our household medical care budgets with these kinds of tools. Entrepreneurial Solution #6: Voluntarism And Mutualism. Voluntarism has a long tradition in America. Mutual aid societies were prevalent before the New Deal. Ethnic, religious and trade groups joined together for mutual support. The Federal Government co-opted these functions and now people look to Washington DC to solve their problems. But young people today are more interested in voluntarism and non-political social activism. 30 years ago in the Wall Street Journal, Peter Drucker argued for the non-profit sector to replace the welfare state. Creative and innovative people find ways to surmount institutionally-erected barriers in all phases of life, and medical care is certainly one of those. There's a liberating and energizing sense of acting as the custodian of one's own life and helping others who need it. It's the entrepreneurial ethic. Entrepreneurial Solution #7: Distributed Knowledge. There is so much available knowledge today about healthy life habits and about the symptoms and characteristics of various medical conditions, and about options for treatment. We as individuals are free to explore, and responsible for gathering our own store of knowledge. The outcome of the research may not be definitive, and we may find ourselves making a choice between alternatives. But doctors and hospital administrators make choices too, and they are not infallible. It may be possible for an individual to gather more knowledge about their own specific condition from the internet than any single doctor can know, simply as a consequence of concentrated effort. Each of us can take responsibility for our own life. Summing up: Murray Sabrin's prescription: Eliminate employer-based insurance.Make a single exception for the case in which the employer pays the direct primary care fee for the patient.The resultant employer savings are deposited in employees' health savings accounts.Employees determine their best medical care options.Phase out Medicare and Medicaid.Let young people create super health savings accounts so that they don't need Medicare in the future.Hospitals price at realistic market pricing, not insurance-inflated prices.All prices are transparent.Get the government out of medical care — it's none of their business.Free up resources from the medical-pharmaceutical-insurance complex and redirect them to savings, investment and philanthropy.

Murray told the story of a large (4-500 employees) company that contracted directly with a service that brought a vehicle with an MRI machine to the employers location, and charged $400 per MRI to the employees. The same vehicle was utilized by a nearby hospital that charged $6,000 for the same MRI. Direct contracting saved $5400 per unit cost, or 90%. Direct contracting has the potential to significantly reduce costs in the Medical Care system, while opening access and increasing convenience. Entrepreneurial Solution #5: The 3-tier household medical care budget system. Murray has a well-constructed and eminently practical household medical care budget system. There's a version for families with at least on member in employment and an alternative for those on Medicare today. There are three elements: Direct Primary Care for a monthly fee, covering unlimited office visits and routine tests.A Health Savings Account to cover costs of specialists, prescription drugs, medical equipment, major tests and brief hospitalizations.Catastrophic insurance coverage for major operations and hospitalizations and long term care. Greater detail is provided in Murray's book, Universal Medical Care From Conception To End Of Life. Download our corresponding PDF, which features an adapted table from Murray's book: Mises.org/E4B_137_PDF In a system of personal responsibility, we would all manage our household medical care budgets with these kinds of tools. Entrepreneurial Solution #6: Voluntarism And Mutualism. Voluntarism has a long tradition in America. Mutual aid societies were prevalent before the New Deal. Ethnic, religious and trade groups joined together for mutual support. The Federal Government co-opted these functions and now people look to Washington DC to solve their problems. But young people today are more interested in voluntarism and non-political social activism. 30 years ago in the Wall Street Journal, Peter Drucker argued for the non-profit sector to replace the welfare state. Creative and innovative people find ways to surmount institutionally-erected barriers in all phases of life, and medical care is certainly one of those. There's a liberating and energizing sense of acting as the custodian of one's own life and helping others who need it. It's the entrepreneurial ethic. Entrepreneurial Solution #7: Distributed Knowledge. There is so much available knowledge today about healthy life habits and about the symptoms and characteristics of various medical conditions, and about options for treatment. We as individuals are free to explore, and responsible for gathering our own store of knowledge. The outcome of the research may not be definitive, and we may find ourselves making a choice between alternatives. But doctors and hospital administrators make choices too, and they are not infallible. It may be possible for an individual to gather more knowledge about their own specific condition from the internet than any single doctor can know, simply as a consequence of concentrated effort. Each of us can take responsibility for our own life. Summing up: Murray Sabrin's prescription: Eliminate employer-based insurance.Make a single exception for the case in which the employer pays the direct primary care fee for the patient.The resultant employer savings are deposited in employees' health savings accounts.Employees determine their best medical care options.Phase out Medicare and Medicaid.Let young people create super health savings accounts so that they don't need Medicare in the future.Hospitals price at realistic market pricing, not insurance-inflated prices.All prices are transparent.Get the government out of medical care — it's none of their business.Free up resources from the medical-pharmaceutical-insurance complex and redirect them to savings, investment and philanthropy.

Charlie sits down with Texas Gubernatorial candidate attempting to primary Republican Gov. Greg Abbott. In this fascinating discussion about states rights and federalism, Huffines makes the  case why Texas doesn't need the permission of the federal government to close it's borders to illegal immigrants. He also explains why the "premeditated" attack against Texas conservatives must be stopped if America, freedom, and the Founders' vision for the country is going to be saved. Don also rails against Texas property tax, which he believes forces Americans to "rent their property from the government." While this isn't an endorsement, this discussion between Charlie and his old friend is a can't miss episode for any American concerned about the future of America's largest and most influential red state.  Support the show: http://www.charliekirk.com/support See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
