A Controlled Test

Oops, I forgot to mention.

I originally created the Medical Savings and Loan as a product line to be offered by an insurance company.

I chose this route because I wanted a controlled experiment.

I put forward the proposition that: "People, if given greater control of their finances and given good information about buying medical care, would do a better job spending their health care dollars than people in a controlled group pool."

Creating the MS&L as a product line would allow the insurance company direct control over all the variables.

I have always accepted the possibility that I am wrong. If the policyholders proved completely incapable of managing their resources, one could roll back the experiment with less damage done.

This idea of creating a test case is similar to methodologies used in science.

  1. I have been browsing on-line more than 3 hours these days, yet I never discovered any interesting article like yours. It is beautiful worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will likely be a lot more helpful than ever before.
