ABSTRACT
The author discusses the health care system in the U.S. By any measure, the U.S. spends an enormous amount of money on health care. To put U.S. spending into perspective: the United States spent 15.3% of GDP on health care in 2004, while Canada spent 9.9%, France 10.7%, Germany 10.9%, Sweden 9.1%, and Great Britain 8.7%. Or consider per capita spending: the U.S. spent $6,037 per person in 2004, compared to Canada at $3,161, France at $3,191, Germany at $3,169, and Great Britain at $2,560. INSET: MORE TAXPAYER DOLLARS, LESS MEDICAL RESEARCH.
