After March 21st

The economist Greg Mankiw writes calmly about "communitarianism" versus "libertarianism" to discuss the passing of the House Heath Care Bill.

His use of those words is non mainstream: I am not sure if his approach to their definitions is something he coined himself or is part of the academic economist's vocabulary. Anyway, his blog post is a good read if you have been hearing or reading only heated and impassioned words for the past few weeks.

Brad Warbiany writes about the bill's immediate effects. It appears that during the rest of 2010, the major impact will have nothing to do with either "communitarianism" nor "libertarianism" but instead be complications for insurance companies.
