Dr. Dan Gade is a retired army officer who was massively injured in Iraq, leading to the amputation of his leg, amongst other injuries.  Through his experiences in recovery, he has come to believe that the structure of the VA disability system is hurting veterans and creating a culture of entitlement.  He’s become a vocal supporter for change, and is a driving force in trying to force an overhaul in the way the VA addresses disability compensation.

 

In this episode we discuss:

  • The incentives for disabled veterans to not work, and why this is bad
  • The difference between disabilities and conditions
  • His non-profit experiment, the Independence Project
  • How the structure of the system incentivises abuse, leading to a culture of entitlement.
