A MARKET WAITING FOR A BUSINESS
Anita Sharpe on Business

Somewhere out there, there is a revolutionary thinker on the cusp of changing the world and making a fortune. In insurance. Halley Suitt and I have each speculated about the potential sea changes in society if more people felt they could leave boring jobs and bad marriages and get affordable health insurance.

Yesterday, the New York Times weighed in and identified the tipping point:

'The trend toward freelance work among the well-to-do means a powerful new constituency for health reform is taking shape. It is one thing for politicians to address the uninsured out of liberal-minded generosity to poor workers. That makes for nice speeches. But this is different. If even healthy members of the professional class are just an entrepreneurial itch away from discovering they are uninsurable, maybe they will decide it is time to really fix things.'
