Health is not a market!

"Health is not a market!" Therefore there can not be any supplies and demands, there cannot be any free-market. Doctors, hospitals, nurses, all health-related jobs are to be governement-controlled. We could expect that such a statement was made in the 1950's somewhere in the USSR or in a Eastern European Democratic Republic... 

No! Worse than that! It was made on September 7th, 2012, in France, by the French Minister of Health, Ms. Marisol Touraine, talking about health policies that would be implemented in the near future... That is welfareship in action!

Sometimes France deserves its nickname: "Little USSR"...

  1. She is unwillingly right...
    Health is a personal asset that each human chooses to spend more or less liberally...
    BUT healthcare, and care in a general acception are services and products in a global market.
