It can be rational for people to seek placebo treatments, and quite
profitable for insurance companies to cover them. Many insurance
companies cover things like accupuncture and chiropractic. They don't
care whether or not the treatment is effective--they only care that
keeping their customers happy keeps them paying premiums.
