We’ll spend a bunch of Fun Day talking about behavioral economics, for which there is no reading assignment. But we’ll also do two other things:
1) We’ll go around the circle and I’ll ask you to give a 20-second update on your book report project. This will have no bearing on your grade, and I have no expectations other than for you to give a 20-second update.
2) We’ll talk a bit more about health insurance. Please come prepared to discuss this article: British Balance Benefit vs. Cost of Latest Drugs. You should bring an opinion about whether the U.S. should have a similar approach to health spending on Medicare/Medicaid/etc. An optional additional reading, by famous health economist Victor Fuchs, is The Proposed Government Health Insurance Company — No Substitute for Real Reform. (This last article is easier to read if you download it as a PDF.)
