Is Health Commodity? How to Organize the Health Care System?

Michael F. Cannon, director of health policy research at the Cato Institute, will visit Poland on 5 and 6 June.

His scholarly activities include public health issues, regulation of physicians, medical facilities, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, employer-sponsored and other private health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, Veterans Health Administration, medical malpractice litigation, administrative law, international health systems, political philosophy, and much more.

Cannon’s work has been referenced in numerous journals and publications, including The Washington Post, which described him as ‘an influential health care wonk at the libertarian Cato Institute,’ and ‘the premier libertarian Obamacare critic’.

The Washingtonian has also named Cannon ‘one of the 250 most influential people in Washington’ in 2021 as well as one of ‘Washington, D.C.’s 500 most influential people’ for 2022.

We invite you to participate in events in Warsaw and Wrocław, where we will talk about, among other things, myths about the US healthcare sector and lessons from the US for European healthcare systems. Should health be seen as a commodity? Are there good healthcare systems? The most prominent libertarian healthcare researcher will talk about the limitations of current regulatory policy and market-based approaches.
