    Health Economics Bibliography:

    A few days ago, someone asked me for a reading list of material from an Austro-libertarian point of view, on health economics. I placed that on this blog:

    Libertarian Views on Health Care

    I asked for additions, and several people sent me more material. Thanks to them, I can now offer a greatly expanded bibliography.

    Let me just say that this listing is highly relevant, given the attempts of the Republicans to repeal Obamacare. What would a truly free enterprise health care industry look like? This bibliography furnishes some answers to that question. See on this below.

    A while ago I sent you an article of me attacking Rabbi Shmuly Yanklowitz for donating a kidney to an orphan while calling those who traffic organs on the black market “shameful”, and generally being against a free market in organs.
    Amazingly, and to my complete and utter surprise, Yanklowitz has just reversed his position.
    Here is my original piece attacking him: http://thejewishlibertarian.com/2015/06/22/on-organ-donation-organ-sales-and-hypocrisy/
    Here is his original piece attacking organ trafficking: http://www.haaretz.com/print-edition/opinion/the-shame-of-orthodoxy-1.281148
    Here is his new piece now supporting a (regulated) market in human organs.
    http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2015/oct/02/donated-kidneys-paying-black-market-organs

    Here is my public apology, which I said I would pen if Yanklowitz ever reversed his position, which he has.

    Shmuly Yanklowitz Supports Human Organ Sales!
