Dr. Thomas Stossel on Medical Conflict of Interest Mania
Dr. Thomas Stossel (yes, John's brother) recently spoke with Reason on a topic that is near and dear to my heart, medical conflict of interest. He may be the first person I have ever heard speak rationally about the subject, and I highly recommend that you check it out. Among medical professionals, the official party line is always that conflict of interest is a huge problem caused by an unruly class of doctors who are only out to make money getting in bed with evil, profit-making corporations who would just as soon poison their patients as show any sort of compassion. His level-headed presentation gives me back a little bit of hope for the industry.
