Bob Murphy is our returning guest this weekend, as we wrap up a three-part series on the lousy, anti-market healthcare system in the US.

He’s co-authored a terrific new book called The Primal Prescription, which may well be the first thorough analysis of the modern American healthcare system by an Austrian economist.

Bob eviscerates the arguments for Obamacare, and debunks all of the many myths progressives use to claim a “right” to healthcare—and to justify interfering with the very market forces that could make medical treatments cheaper and better. His co-author, a libertarian ER doctor, provides some great practical advice about how you should navigate your own health issues, your own doctors, and the absurd insurance networks to protect your health and pocketbook.

Note: The views expressed on are not necessarily those of the Mises Institute.
