Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) will discuss the impacts of various possible health care reforms.
What positive reforms could be done? What will happen if we pass the wrong reforms? And what would the cost be of no reform at all?
Edward H. Crane
Under the leadership of its founder and president Ed Crane, the Cato Institute has grown to become one of the nation's most prominent public policy research organizations.
Crane has been a pioneer in framing the political debate as one, not between liberal and conservative, but rather between civil society (the voluntary sector) and political society (government power). He was at the forefront of promoting personal accounts in lieu of the current Social Security system, and was one of the first national leaders of the term limits movement. Crane is the coeditor of several books and serves on the Board of U.S. Term Limits, and is a member of the Mont PÃ¨lerin Society.
He is a chartered financial analyst and former vice president at Alliance Capital Management Corp. Crane's writing has been published in the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the New York Times and Forbes. He has been interviewed on NPR's Morning Edition and Talk of the Nation, C-SPAN's Washington Journal, Fox News Channel, MSNBC, and other media. Crane holds an MBA from the University of Southern California.
