A Dose Of Disparity

Hour 1:           America spends more on health care than other industrialized nations, but other countries seem to spend their money more wisely. That’s the result of research conducted by Lauren Taylor, a presidential scholar at Harvard Divinity School. She’ll join us this hour to discuss her findings, which she includes in a new book she has co-authored, The American Health Care Paradox: Why Spending More is Getting Us Less (PublicAffairs, 2013).

    I just read an article that claims the world’s billionaires have doubled their wealth since the financial ‘crisis’ of 2008… Why? I am a disabled veteran and it hurts me to realize that I served and was injured (though I have seen soldiers hurt much, much worse) to protect decision makers in government and especially in industry and finance who protect only themselves. The banks are even bigger and more likely to fail than before, the good jobs that once created the middle class are now overseas, the environment is being destroyed and education is constantly slashed all of which practically guarantees that it will only get worse and those who are running the country do so with and for money, not from the mandate of the people or even with the common good of all at heart and all in an effort to have even more than the too much they already have… When will it end?
