    I don’t think medicine should be subject to the law of supply and demand. We are in a profession in which we pledge duty first and foremost to the welfare of the patient; we do not try to maximize the amount collected.  We have a fiduciary duty to the patient.  This is something I wish Wall Street and financial “professionals” had kept in mind.  Therefore, it is not helpful to be jealous of actors and athletes incomes because they are in a true free market and usually have a short time to maximize income.  Their income years are faster than dog years; more like playboy bunny years; 5-7 years tops.
