Money-Driven Medicine

Tonight's episode of Bill Moyers' Journal on PBS featured about a 45-minute preview of a new documentary, Money-Driven Medicine, based on a book of the same name by Maggie Mahar.

Film's website that includes the trailer:


What was aired tonight was quite good indeed, at least in my opinion. The foundational structure of the film is deftly woven interview segments with very smart people saying smart things. In terms of structure, it reminded me a bit of [b]No End in Sight[b].

Did anyone else get to see this?

Re: Money-Driven Medicine

When I first saw this thread title, I thought it said "Monkey-Driven Medicine." I was disappointed to find it otherwise.

I'd watch that movie.
