“Economist William Hsiao is one of the most interesting figures in health care. In 1988, the government of Taiwan asked the Harvard School of Public Health professor to lead an effort to overhaul the country's health-care system. The success of the single-payer system Hsiao designed attracted the notice of health reformers in Vermont, who persuaded then-Senate President Pro Tempore Peter Shumlin to make a similar system a centerpiece of his gubernatorial campaign. When Shumlin won, he asked Hsiao to develop a variant for the Green Mountain State.” http://www.governing.com/t opics/health-human-service s/single-payer-solution-ve rmont.html
