Resubmit of question Re: What is the evolutionary basis of a state run health care system I have been thinking about the evolutionary mechanisms which would either select for a state run health care system which is paid for by equal taxation like in the UK or to select for a system like that in the US where it is largely private and health care depends on the ability to pay of the individual. Has there been any theoretical research on the basis of these two systems? I got the reply: Hi - I'm not certain in what sense you're trying to apply evolution, or what specific evolutionary concepts you are considering? I think that I am asking how would evolution force the selection of one healthcare system over another, or even does evolution have a role. I do not know of any concepts which consider this, so I would like to know the current theories on the subject. Are systems like altruism involved? Thanks
