"When when Henry Ford Edsel Ford to be a car wanted the Edsel to be a car too. To be, you know, a tribute to his son. Nobody wanted to buy the thing. He couldn't force people to buy the ad souls. But nobody wanted to pay the cost of the resources needed to make it the only way I can get wealthy in a market system is to please other people I tell my students like in the bible, it says do unto others as you would have them do unto you in a market system. That's not good enough. You gotta do unto others things. They don't even know they want to them yet. Bright. I didn't know I was going to want an iphone for my wife now ten years ago. Okay. Now, here's let me let me be the devil's advocate here. Obviously you history shows you're right about this. I mean history shows that capitalist countries rise, they innovate the create these things but in doing so it does create this world in which some people are really rich and some people are not so rich if you have something like healthcare, which is now becoming more and more sophisticated more and more expensive and can do more and more. So that people actually can. Live through diseases that used to kill them like that. Does the poor man have any kind of an argument? It's not fair that my child this. I mean, this is the argument it's not fair that my child should not have this healthcare simply because I have no money. My health has a right to this healthcare is he wrong. Well, yes. I mean where where are these? If you say you have the right to healthcare. Then you've said that someone is required to provide it mareo. And so what we really I mean healthcare is a very interesting issue because the government has been running healthcare at least since the at least since World War Two I say to my students when you're taking somebody out to dinner one. Do you tell them that you're picking up the tab and the answer is after they've ordered right thinking on Medicare works. So think how Medicaid we're the way. It works is not only are they telling the waiter not only telling you, they're picking up the tab. They're telling the waiter, they're picking up the tab. So what am I driven to do in terms of research? Search and put my resources, I should invest my resources not in something, which is an inexpensive way of improving someone's health condition. It's to make something that's really super expensive that Medicare will pay for. In fact, you've probably seen the an-and television for the scooter interestingly enough, it never says how much it costs if you get on their website, which I have done. It never tells you how much it costs. It tells you that what they'll make sure that Medicare or your insurance will pay for. And so what we really need to do on the healthcare system is to switch it to essentially, what our health savings accounts, and that would drive down the cost of all this healthcare other all sorts of reasons why you know, why why is insulin so expensive. Well, it's it's an it's so expensive because it costs seven billion dollars to come to to bring it to to to the to the consumer. So there's lots of things that we. We need to do in the healthcare system. But it is a system where you know, the the left tends to pretend that this is somehow a market economy system. It's not it is dominated by the government have to stop you there amount of time that that really was incredibly clear people that hillsdale are lucky the students you were lucky professor Gary will from his book as a capitalist manifesto, which I'm now going to read a capitalist manifesto understanding, the market economy and defending liberty. Thank you very much for coming. Thank you for having me. Great. I'd let me end with the final reflection. Something happened on Saturday actually early Sunday. I guess where it was taking place. You know, I went out to dinner with my family had a great time and came back and like a fool went on Twitter because I never sleep and all my family went to bed.
