From Tyler Cowen's: "much cheaper, almost as good".
If something does 80% of what is needed for only 20% of the price, there would be a great many situations where this absolutely makes sense.
Of course this kind of thinking is currently illegal in this country as it runs contrary to the concept of "standard of care" (unless we modify this concept) and if it were pursued by a physician, (s)he would loose their license.
When will we grow up?
