Lecture 16 April 1, 2014 Goals: Consider how contrasting health care systems fit within the equity-efficiency continuum Consider ways that equity and efficiency could complement one another Establish the basics of taxation policy Consider larger philosophical debates including the tension between equity and efficiency (Go over efficiency and equity definitions again; also that efficiency vs equity is thought to be on a continuum) So… which system is better? Philosophically: do you personally want to err towards an efficient or an equitable system? Rawls’ Veil of Ignorance What is fair? Start from scratch, not knowing what role you would play If you had no idea where you might end up in a health care system, what would that health care system look like?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
