What Sector Has Shortages?

Email Print

Shortages, as any economist knows, arise from government controls and regulations of various sorts. I searched google on one word: shortages. A major cluster of shortages appears in the health sector, confirming that government (federal and state) is the culprit. Drugs are one area. The FDA even has a drug shortages index. The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists also monitors drug shortages. Another health-care shortage area is in trained health professionals. We are told as well that there is a blood shortage. There are always organ shortages. There are always reports of hospital shortages.
