Relying on Experts?


Medical Guesswork

Even today, with a high-tech health-care system that costs the nation $2 trillion a year, there is little or no evidence that many widely used treatments and procedures actually work better than various cheaper alternatives.

And even when we do have evidence that more expensive isn't necessarily better, we don't have the will to make the changes. Otherwise we would use qualified midwives to attend 80% of all births.
