Suggesting Policies and Practices for Increasing Justice and Assuring the Sustainability of the U.S. Healthcare System

The goal of this chapter is to suggest policies and practices that would render the U.S. health care system just and sustainable by: (1) Curbing current unethical and scientifically unsound medical practices that are unjustifiably harmful and of little or no benefit; (2) Financing healthcare by drawing upon the profits earned by all those individuals, organizations, and manufacturers that provide healthcare. To have this happen, the healthcare system must be purged of conflicts of interest, especially the FDA. Dealing justly with costs requires that excess profits that amount to gouging be mandated to be used for medical interventions.
