If you are going to be in the Modesto, California area the last weekend in July, you will not want to miss this year's Civics Summit hosted by the Institute for Principle Studies. The theme for this year is as timely as today's headlines: our health care mess.I will again be presenting lectures, speaking about the Biblical foundations of economics, the economics of the third party payer systems, why middle-of-the-road policy so often leads to socialism, and why health care is so expensive.

We know that healthcare is expensive, and it affects us all on a daily basis. In fact, despite major attempts to reduce costs, the United States has some of the highest healthcare costs in the world. The real question is: why? A thorough study of both economics and biblical principles can give us insight into why current policies are not working, and what better alternatives exist.
