Victor Fuchs, PhD, one of the nation's foremost health economists, says a government-run plan will not solve the huge financial issues that plague health-care in America in this 1:2:1.

Fuchs recently outlined his perspective in an article titled "The Proposed Government Health Insurance Company -- No Substitute for Real Reform," which ran in the New England Journal of Medicine in May. Fuchs also talks about how the present health care system functions, what its major problems are, and what reforms are needed to solve them in this podcast.
