Just the stats...

I'm a sucker for data presented in a cool format and this video hits on all cylinders.

The video starts off a little slow but after the first minute you won't be disappointed. The impact of this graph on the US is not the focus of the presentation, but I think you can see how America will be challenged in a world where everyone is healthier and wealthier. Good stuff - btw: if you get the posts via email visit to view the video.

This chart is pretty self-explanatory but it really shows what an outlier we are when it comes to healthcare spending.

The rest of the world is neatly clustered spending 6-11% of their GDP on healthcare while we spend nearly double that amount as a percentage of our MUCH LARGER GDP on healthcare with a questionable return on investment.
