Episode details

in part 2 of our introduction to the medical-industrial complex, we move on from our philosophic and social analysis of society and focus in on the economics - the ownership, production, and distribution of resources that meet the material wants and needs of society. we set out to define some terms for our argument by investigating the public sector vs. private sector, market economy vs. planned economy, and begin to touch on healthcare administration vs. healthcare finance. this will all set up future episodes where we’ll delve into the devilish details and concoct a formal, broad-based analysis of the specific entities inhabiting the medical-industrial complex and their interactions.
