Are We Mixing Too Much Business Into Medicine?
Medicine is meant to help and heal us, and that is why it was a nonprofit model for so many generations. Charitable and religious organizations have long worked to ensure that people have access to medical treatments when they are needed. But somewhere along the way businesses got the idea that there was money in those treatments and they began to convince us all that a for-profit model would be better. The result is that while the United States spends significantly more on healthcare than other industrialized nations, our health outcomes are worse.

The United States spends 18% of its GDP on healthcare, compared to 8.8% on average for other industrialized nations. Americans have seen their health insurance premiums and healthcare costs rise by 20% between just 2007 and 2014, and for those with chronic conditions necessary treatments are becoming less affordable.
