National Bureau of Economic Research. 1

I’m just looking over the August NBER digest.  It covers five NBER articles, of which three may be mildly interesting.  The first has the scary title, Public Insurance Expansions Crowd Out Private Health Insurance by Jonathan Gruber and Kosali Simon.  We learn that: For every 100 children who are enrolled in public insurance, 60 children lose private insurance.”  Thank God that George Bush had the courage to stand up to the radicals and threatened to veto an expansion of child health coverage.  Otherwise, they might lose their private insurance.
