For those of you worried about the recent slowdown in growth, there is a really good online forum the Cato Institute set up regarding multiple solutions to the problem: http://www.cato.org...

Now, I know what you're thinking: Isn't the Cato Institute biased? Why, yes they are! However, this forum includes opinions from all around the political spectrum--conservative, libertarian, and progressive. They have people from the Roosevelt Institute to the Mercatus Center, Brookings Institution to the American Enterprise Institute, the Progressive Policy Center to, of course, the Cato Institute itself.

It is a list of articles by academics and think tank types regarding the recent slowdown in economic growth, and all of them propose different ideas. It's fascinating.

Is there perhaps anything of this nature for the healthcare system debate?

This forum actually has a lot of articles about health care.

Cato institute is terrific, in my opinion.

Cato, Mises, etc. are all great institutes.
