Should there be more or less privatisation of hospital and healthcare services? stats discuss

ACT’s answer: Cuando el Estado no tiene dinero para invertir en Hospitales e instrumental que requiera los avances tecnológicos es indudable que el capital privado puede suplir la incapacidad de inversión del Estado
Además la sanidad privada puede ser un estímulo para los avances médicos y científicos, dado que intentarán que sus médicos y científicos sean los mejores para captar mas clientes.
Esto no quita que todo el sistema sanitario esté bajo la tutela del Gobierno quien deberá vigilar que la sanidad es un bien común y disponible a un coste similar o parecido a la sanidad nacional
Resumiendo: como en el futbol, los mejores equipos tienen los mejores jugadores y la mayoria de socios y aficionados
