Photo Friday: A Real Health Care Tax on Your Sandwich; My New Hometown Airline

Slow Club San Francisco

Slow Club San Francisco

At the restaurant Slow Club in San Francisco, we were greeted with this notice when our bill arrived. I think this is a novel and interesting way to bring price transparency to health care. It’s especially interesting that in San Francisco, there’s probably more price transparency coming from this restaurant than from the industry itself (see the middle link from this post about that). I suggest that they go one step farther and publish the health care cost component of every menu item. This just may help spur more consumer interest in the accountable, affordable, evidence-based care system.

The other photograph is of a few jets from the airline people are tired of hearing me talk about, VirginAmerica.
