Related to yesterday's post and the article contained there.
I'm on the benefits committee for my university (I was appointed, I didn't ask). We're going to have a presentation by an insurance company on Monday. The company is going to buy us dinner afterwards. This is an example of an administrative, overhead cost that all of us pay for. Your higher premiums are going to buy a lot of people like myself dinner, in order to convince us that that we sign up for some insurance package that we'll pay too much for in order to provide dinner presentations for other potential customers.
I already feel dirty.
