Healthcare for Dummies

Doctor in scrubs with angel's wings

In this episode, we discuss alternative health systems: different ways to deliver healthcare to patients, and how states, nonprofit organizations, and even companies—like Whole Foods—have implemented unique concepts to enable better and cheaper healthcare options for consumers.

Our guest is Sean Flynn, an assistant professor of economics at Scripps College. He is the author of Economics for Dummies, which has now been translated into seven foreign languages, as well as the coauthor of the world’s best-selling college textbook, Economics: Principles, Problems, and Policies. A recurring commentator on NPR, FOX Business, and ABC News, Sean holds a B.A. in economics from the University of Southern California and a Ph.D. in economics from U.C. Berkeley. Sean’s in-depth knowledge of our healthcare system makes for a great discussion.
