Debate re malpractice and health reform
Here is a link to an article by Richard Epstein advocating for medical malpractice tort reform.

For good sources of information on the medical malpractice "crisis" debate you can check out Tom Baker's book "The Medical Malpractice Myth" (here) and Public Citizen's report "The Great Medical Malpractice Hoax" (here).
