Fun point from Geoff Mulgan

Health systems are generally quite conservative.

Indeed, they are. For they\’re almost always either largely (ie, US) or wholly (NHS) government run.

And government run bureaucracies are notably conservative.

Which is, of course, why we don\’t want governments running health care systems (financing them is just fine): because we\’d rather not, in this time of rapidly changing technology, find such a vital system being run conservatively.
