Stimulus Plan Part III

While we wait for six more inches of global warming to be cleared from Michigan's highways..... (8 feet so far this year).

Who is spearheading the "effectiveness review" concept inside the Obama administration?

Peter R. Orszag.

Orszag is Director of the Office of Management Budget for the Obama administration.

By all accounts he is a brilliant economist, and an expert on retirement issues.

Best I can determine, he has little or no background in health care.

We love economists here, but wonder about health care reform being driven by economists.

Time will tell.

Update: Apparently Orszag did some HMO consulting during a stint with McKinsey and Co.,
