Zycher on Medical Innovation

In the 12/21/2011 PJMedia, Ben Zycher of PRI discusses "Coal In Our Stockings: The Destruction of Medical Innovation".

In particular, he warns how "comparative effectiveness research" mandates will slow medical innovation as well as cause politicization of results. Patients will be the ultimate victims, deprived of treatments they could have received if the government interference hadn't existed.
