The Chicago Tribune has an excellent story on the vital role the young play in the proposed reforms of the health care system. (HT to Izzit.org).
It's basically the same role they play in the Social Security system. That may seem cynical, but from what I can see, it's true. Current funds are used to support current spending. The article raises a question in my mind. If young people use marginal analysis with a short time horizon, how might that affect their decision to participate?
Izzit has a lesson plan to accompany the article here.
