How Effective is American Healthcare?

I’m trying to follow the debate around the reform of the healthcare system in the USA. As an Italian, it’s very interesting to see how it develops, how the parties exchange views and drive campaigns. In the recent years such civilized debates have disappeared in Italy since there is only one strong leading coalition and opposition is basically non existent (and when there was, it looked like wrestlers screaming at each others in a WWF tournament).

I entertained myself reading this blog post from Umair Haque on HarvardBusiness.org.

The United States gets the smallest bang for the buck in terms of life itself amongst developed countries: it realizes the lowest level of “life returns.”
