Tyler Cowen likes my younger brother Jordan Andrew Kimball’s plan to have free clinics for all we can afford as a nation and have people pay for the rest themselves. I talk about this plan in “Miles Kimball and Noah Smith on Balancing the Budget in the Long Run.” In one of the storified tweets, I write:
I have to credit my brother Jordan Kimball, a radiologist, for the proposal of free clinics for all we can afford, no more.
I hope I have defended and fleshed out my brother Jordan’s plan in a way he would approve.
Note: My wife Gail and I named our son Jordan Matthew Kimball (who is now an undergraduate at Ohio State University studying economics) after my brother Jordan and her father Matthew Cozzens.
