    Also, regarding UHC – it is not going to increase access to health care, it is going to make health insurance more expensive
    The problem in India is the Nehruvian Fabian Socialist setup. You need ~20 different certifications from different Central, State, Local authorities to set up a school/ hospital. Certifications typically go to politically connected players or players with deep pockets. Hence, the shortage of schools and hospitals, with higher fees being charged by the established players.
    The best way to make a product more accessible to everyone is to allow greater supply – to make it easier to build more schools/hospitals etc.

    Hi Menkris,
    This is OT. You have self-identified as a feminist earlier. I think Patriarchy gets a bad rep form feminists, Patriarchy is often necessary to maintain civilized societies. See my post http://humancivilizations.wordpress.com/2013/12/19/redefining-patriarchy/
    We can have a discussion, but you should have an open mind and not use PC shaming language (calling everyone who disagrees with you a misogynist etc).
