Another way of putting this is: it would considerably decrease the requirements that are placed upon health care insurers and providers. It would be as close to extreme free-market health care as can be achieved except for a system in which anyone can legally sell anything and call it “health insurance” or call it “medical care.” In other words, it would be more like anarchy in these fields.

The new American Health Care Act has been unveiled, and critics are calling it more flawed even than the Obamacare it was meant to replace.

But this is a myth … The Bank of England the German central bank have explained that loans are extended before deposits exist … and that the loans create deposits.
