The American Health Care Paradox
Elizabeth Bradley and Lauren Taylor talked about their book, The American Health Care Paradox: Why Spending More is Getting Us Less, in which they question why it is that, compared to all other industrialized countries, Americans spend more and receive less from our healthcare system. They argued that we spend less on social services like food, housing, and education, which have a large impact on health, and when taken together the U.S. does not outspend other countries. This event took place at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. close
