Vancouver businesses jump on the Bitcoin bandwagon

“A new and innovative payment system has a number of Vancouver business owners intrigued. A slew of local businesses, from coffee shops to moving companies, are adopting Bitcoin – a new currency that many believe will revolutionize the way we think about money. Bitcoin is a digital currency, meaning it has no paper trace and lives entirely online. ‘Bitcoin was really born out of banking bailouts,’ says Michael Bliss with Vancouver Bitcoin Co-op. ‘It is the future of money, no doubt.’ The Bitcoin Co-op that Bliss co-founded is a local network for people interested in Bitcoins — traders, investors and merchants.” Continue reading

The Myth of the Free-Market American Health Care System [2012]

The Myth of the Free-Market American Health Care System [2012]

Note that these stats are for government expenditures; they exclude private-sector health spending. If anything, the U.S. figures understate government health spending, because they exclude the $300 billion a year we ‘spend’ through the tax code by making the purchase of employer-sponsored health insurance tax-exempt.

Life-saving transplant denied, health insurance canceled over 26-cent shortfall

Life-saving transplant denied, health insurance canceled over 26-cent shortfall

“There was never any written notification that the payment was short. The Brancos weren’t told of the cancellation in writing until they received a letter dated July 2. Some time later, Paychex returned the $518 payment. Sergio Branco’s doctor also pleaded for help on their behalf. He advised the companies that Branco ‘will most certainly die in the very near future if he does not proceed to transplant; therefore I am writing to request that every effort be made to reinstate his health care insurance coverage.’ That didn’t help. Russell Reid and Paychex did nothing.” Continue reading
