It would be a fine day indeed to embody this panel. Intelligent experts, analysis and a dash of common sense! That's the right prescription.
I had a chance to work in WHO work shops with experts from different countries. I can imagine the day, when someone caring and not involved in politics will bring a multidisciplinary panel, which will be an alternative to

The complexity of this Health Economy is indeed beyond the scope of three minds.
But it sure is fun! Especially when we now focus on the "Medical Industrial Complex" as opposed to those bad guys from the 60's the…"
"Hi David and John,
It becomes clear why three of us are still involved in a Health Care discussion. I am a neonatologistby eduaction, who worked in research for years and was a member of WHO workshops on perinatal care and prevention of diseases of…"
OOOH! I hated writing essays!
