Posted on February 9, by Scott Alexander I. Tyler Cowen writes about cost disease. Cowen seems to use it indiscriminately to refer to increasing costs in general — which I guess is fine, goodness knows we need a word for that.
Cowen assumes his readers already understand that cost disease exists. So I thought I would make the case for the cost disease in the sectors Tyler mentions — health care and education — plus a couple more.
