Income Inequality and Health Care Reform: The Gordian Knot

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

The Affordable Care Act is an important first step in health insurance reform, but the United States also has the harder task of reforming health care. To date, we have been more concerned with paying for health care and less with the problems of health care itself. We will explore the strong link between growing income inequality and the urgent problems of health care and argue that we cannot solve one without the other.  Students are welcome to attend.
