“My Perfect World”

My Perfect World,” by Robyn Stone, Leading Age LTSS Center


“I’m wondering how we can possibly devise policies that address the growing need for long-term services and supports among older adults when we don’t have a housing policy that addresses the need to provide all Americans with viable housing options throughout their lifespans.”

LTC Comment, Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform:

Answer: you can’t devise policies to achieve that goal. That kind of arrogance created long-term care’s problems. The Soviet Union proved central planning doesn’t work. For details, see Ludvig von Mises, Friedrich Hayek, and Murray Rothbard. For the application of market principles to long-term care, read Medicaid and Long-Term Care. Get out of the way and let the free market perform its magic. That’s how to confront the “growing need for long-term services and support.”
