Financial Literacy and Katrina

Summary: Atlanta Fed Lesson.

I've been watching Boston Legal as ethos for my law class.  In Season 3, Alan and Denny try a case in New Orleans about a doctor who relieved pain for suffering patients during Katrina.  The Atlanta Fed has a lesson plan here.

I am always interested in how law and economics mix.  Do you think a doctor has the ethical duty to relieve the pain of a patient or the duty of self preservation?
