The proposals made in this report will not immediately solve all of America's health care problems. These proposals will empower individuals, however, and they will create market institutions through which problems eventually will be solved by individuals' pursuing their own self-interest. These proposals give individuals incentives to solve problems which can never be solved through bureaucracies, regulations or the power of government. The enactment of these proposals would constitute a national commitment to avoid the path traveled by other developed countries and follow a path which is distinctly American in character – one which relies on individual choice and the efficiency of free markets.
