The Children's Hospital's Reception Area is Ugly

During our relief-filled visit to Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago last week, I was surprised to find the children's area to be so dingy and unattractive for such a prestigious institution.

And the more I thought about this, the happier it made me. Reception aesthetics apparently fall very low on this not-for-profit's priority wishlist, which utilizes the latest in life-saving technology every day.

This is a perfect reminder not to spend resources doing "good things" and instead focus on the "most good per $ things".

I credit the Copenhagen Consensus Center for their continued efforts to politically popularize this concept, and urge you to check out their latest project, Rethink HIV.
