Nel dicembre del 1963 viene pubblicato uno studio in cui si sostiene che, per la sua rilevanza, la sanità in USA non può essere lasciata al libero mercato:
The paper by Kenneth J. Arrow, professor of economics at Stanford University, appears in The American Economic Review.
“Arrow’s paper, which endorses the view that ‘the laissez-faire solution for medicine is intolerable,’ is widely considered to have founded the field of health care economics … Arrow’s paper argues that the delivery of health care deviates in fundamental ways from a normal free market, and, therefore, that government intervention is necessary to correct for these deviations.”
