Lecture: Health Care: Should We Move to a Single-Payer System? II

April 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

As part of the St. Olaf College Institute for Freedom and Community’s spring series on Freedom, Community, and Health Care, Amitabh Chandra and Tyler Cowen will engage in a discussion on whether the United States should move to a single-payer health care system.

The discussion, which begins at 7 p.m. in Tomson Hall 280, is free and open to the public. It will be streamed and archived online.

Chandra is the Malcolm Wiener Professor of Public Policy and Director of Health Policy Research at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. He is a member of the Congressional Budget Office’s Panel of Health Advisors, and is a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research.

Cowen is an economist, blogger, best-selling author, and professor of economics at George Mason University and at the Center for the Study of Public Choice. He is also the director of the Mercatus Center, a research center dedicated to bridging the gap between academic research and public policy problems by training students, conducting research of consequence, and persuasively communicating economic ideas to solve society’s most pressing problems and advance knowledge about how markets work to improve people’s lives.
