» Is it "schlocky" to compare life expectancies between countries? from Statistical Modeling, Causal Inference, and Social Science
Greg Mankiw writes: The next time you hear someone cavalierly point to international comparisons in life expectancy as evidence against the U.S. healthcare system, you should be ready to explain how schlocky that argument really is. He points to the... [Read More]

"What caught my eye was that while the US does do very well in age adjusted cancer survival rates there was one nation that beat the US in 6 out of the 8 gender/cancer type categories analysed: Cuba."

Let me think, maybe because the data is coming from a totalitarian nation; run by a nearly senile dictator; that makes up whatever statistics it feels are warranted. According to Cuba the evil imperialist yankee's are getting ready to attack any day now. Cuba isn't exactly a reliable source of information.


"The inefficiency of 'government-run enterprises' is a wholly unjustified assertion. Explain how Medicare manages a 4% overhead while private firms doing essentially the same job routinely spend 14-25% on overhead?"

Because Medicare spends a insane amount on medical expenses. It's not that the government is better at controlling overhead [it isn't]; the reason Medicare overhead looks so small in proportion to medical spending is because the cost of providing extra services is so high.

This only makes sense since an 18 year old requires a lot less health care spending then someone over 65. Also if you're a senior, and your health care is already payed for by the government, regardless of income; then your health care spending is going to be much higher. Common sense, if you don't have to pay for a service then you are going to use more of it.
