We're going back to where we started on today's episode of The Brian Nichols Show, as today I am joined by the first "big guest" on the show (from way back from Episode 7 in Feb. 2018), Dean Clancy!
Dean returns to the show to discuss a venture he's been working on over the past few years, with the end goal of lowering the cost of healthcare.
Dean proposes that the best means to get the ball rollings is via "HSAs for All" which would "give every American access to affordable, high-quality health care by giving every American access to a tax-free Health Savings Account owned and controlled by the patient."
Listen as Dean outlines how an HSA model would work, the benefits of an HSA for All approach, how we actually go about implementing the proposal.

Hey there, friends! Another great BONUS episode for you this week, as I am once again joined by friend of the show and friend of the host, Gary Collins!
Gary returns to the show to talk about something that's truly missing in our society... personal responsibility. It sounds cliche, when looking at all of our problems as a country, the main culprit is in the lack of personal responsibility on behalf of the your average citizen, your average voter, and our politicians.
Listen as Gary and I dig into this into detail, discuss the direct impacts the lack of personal responsibility has on our healthcare costs, and more!

As weeks go by with the economy stuck on pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many economists are starting to sound the alarm that the impact of our economy screeching to a halt could cause as much, if not more longterm death and prolonged hardship than the virus itself.
Dan J. Mitchell, a libertarian economist with a Ph.D. in Economics from George Mason University and founder for the Center for American Prosperity is amongst those economists raising his voice in concern. Mitchell joins The Brian Nichols Show today to discuss one of his more recent articles that discusses that very concern, titled, "The Temporary Tradeoff Between Health Outcomes and Economic Outcomes".
Listen as we discuss his article and then dig deeper into the dangers of a stagnant economy as it pertains to both the economic and physical health of the nation and more!
