Urban Interventionism and Local Knowledge
Not only do government interventions tend to compromise the knowledge-utilizing properties of the price system, they also impinge directly and in important ways on local knowledge, or Hayek’s “knowledge of the particular circumstances of time and place.” This local knowledge includes norms and trust levels that promote impersonal market interactions and complement more familiar forms of production-related skills and
know-how. Thus, along with the well-known Hayekian lesson that the effective use of local knowledge depends on an extensively used and well-functioning price system, it is equally important to appreciate the reverse: i.e., the role of certain kinds of local knowledge in enabling the extensive use and smooth functioning of the price system to occur. In this way, interventionism can diminish the price system’s effectiveness not only by directly distorting relative prices, but also indirectly by undermining local knowledge. As is generally true of interventionism, these consequences tend to reinforce the interventionist propensities of public choosers

On Wednesday we are voting to overturn these junks plans. I am eager to see whether Republicans want to support these junk plans and stick w Trump or do they want to support their constituents. I think they stick w Trump.

These are called Junk Insurance Plans and to no ones surprise the trump people love them. This Wednesday, we Senate Democrats are forcing a vote to overturn this stupid rule allowing junk plans. Tammy Baldwin and all Senate D’s cosponsored the legislation.

The Trump administration is trying to use a loophole in the law - if a plan exists for less than a year, then patient protections are no longer required by law. In other words, if you have a plan w a duration of 364 days, it’s allowed to give you Garbage health insurance.

So part of how healthcare works is there are certain minimum standards for a healthcare plan - it’s gotta cover ER visits, pregnancy, Athsma - there’s a long list of what they call Essential Health Benefits - a list of ways that insurance companies are not allowed to screw you.
