The commons problem also explains why health care costs have and are escalating. Becaujse health care is paid by third parties (government and employers/insurance companies) we patients think is is free and want as much as we can get. Providers are glad to oblige and come up with ever more costly ways to provide what patients want. Third parties, (particularly government politicians), have no real way to resist.
