By the way, my aim was not to drift into military spending or other. slides referred to were 14,15 and 16.
These slides show facts that are accepted across the board. These are not fake or alternative facts.
What you do with those facts is the question.
My point was to think how to improve healthcare delivery per dollar invested.
In another life, I was involved in that at the micro and macro level.
Yes, as advanced societies, we invest individually and collectively huge amounts.
Are the funds spent wisely? My answer is not really.
Do we need to have a revolution? My answer is not really.
Perhaps a down to earth observation (always keeping in mind potential investment opportunities). In the US, I understand that many (perhaps many that don't feel connected to the elites) can run into major financial difficulty when they become sick. The same problem occurs too in Canada but much less so.
Isn't fascinating that about 18% of GDP spent on healthcare is not enough for basic coverage?
Some diseases go away by themselves. Some, if not treated, can leave scars.
Healthcare will tend to become a larger issue going forward. Can we manage? Absolutely.
May be some paradigm shifts however.
I like prevention, if possible.
