Recent Book Moves Beyond Defensive Medicine, Tackles Entitlement Reform
Date:4/19/2010

ple in a democracy will choose a path of servitude to central authority - some calling them Czars these days - in return for promises we know cannot and will not be kept.”

Beauchamp says change should spring from a belief that preserving health and providing health care is necessary for our society, our economy, and our morality. "The changes imperative for a ‘Values-Based Health Care System’ are realizing that health care is not a cost center but an enormous productive, and enterprising industry noting health actually creates wealth!"

He continues, "The lure of a free lunch (and free medicine), is so enticing that any Ponzi scheme will do, even when it is sponsored by government. The ethics of all of this will turn ugly very quickly, and then we will see the seizure of our liberties, our property, and our personhood for what it truly is." Doctors will be grieving for their patients and for their profession. Many will even forgive people for what they do.

People should consider the kind of relationship they currently have with their doctors keeping in mind who might be manipulating it - as if their lives depend on it – because it does. David Cutler, Professor of Economics at Harvard University says, "'Slaves to Medicine' is an important book that can help shape health care in our country for the next several decades."

George Beauchamp, MD, is a practicing pediatric ophthalmologist and strabismus surgeon in Dallas, Texas. He is a professor of clinical ophthalmology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas teaching medical ethics, and serves as Chairman of the Children's Eye Foundation.
