Why is life expectancy in the US lower than in other rich countries?

    Americans have a lower life expectancy than people in other rich countries despite paying much more for healthcare. We explore the number of factors which might explain this difference.by Max RoserOctober 29, 2020

    Why do Americans have a lower life expectancy than people in other rich countries, despite paying so much more for health care?

    The short summary of what I will discuss below is that Americans suffer higher death rates from smoking, obesity, homicides, opioid overdoses, suicides, road accidents, and infant deaths. In addition to this, deeper poverty and less access to healthcare mean Americans at lower incomes die at a younger age than poor people in other rich countries.

    America, Land of the Dying? Alarming Study Shows U.S. Killing Its Own Population
    As Bor and his researchers note, inequality is surely a big part of the picture. In 2017, economist Peter Temin described how America began to diverge into what are essentially two separate nations in the 1970s. One nation – around 20% of the total population — boasts college educations, good jobs, and access to quality healthcare. The other nation, where the 80% majority resides, is stuck with low wages, insecure jobs, fewer education opportunities, and unaffordable and inadequate healthcare. These are the people getting sicker and dying younger than they used to. Temin observes that the US economic structure now looks a lot more like that of a developing nation than a wealthy superpower, which may help explain why the country’s mortality rates as a whole can’t compete with peer countries where such bifurcation is less pronounced. Thomas Ferguson, Director of Research at the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET), has studied America’s increasing turn to money-driven politics, which has resulted in public-minded policies giving way to free market-driven policies that do not consider the needs of the majority.
    "Human flourishing" in practice.

    for educational purposes only and is not investment advice
    lot of stuff going on in ai, biotech and health sciences

    this is a potentially much larger deal than it may seem

    about twelve minutes or so and this analyst lays it out pretty well

    around the 6 min mark you'll get the idea and applications

    i really hope there is something here

    i know people who suffer with/from arthritis in a big way...

    Humans Have Salamander-Like Ability to Regrow Cartilage in Joints

    Process could be harnessed as a treatment for osteoarthritis 

     
    Inflamed hip joint

    Contrary to popular belief, cartilage in human joints can repair itself through a process similar to that used by creatures such as salamanders and zebrafish to regenerate limbs, researchers at Duke Health found.

    Publishing online Oct. 9 in the journal Science Advances, the researchers identified a mechanism for cartilage repair that appears to be more robust in ankle joints and less so in hips. The finding could potentially lead to treatments for osteoarthritis, the most common joint disorder in the world.

    If you don't increase revenue faster than costs, how would you ever make more money?

     

    I think you are trying to be funny rgio but that is actually not how markets work.   Risk-adjusted ROI does not evolve that radically over time.

    But who cares?  Almost of voting American adults just voted for a guy who clearly has his own unique personal view on how markets work.   Is it not fascinating that just shy of 50% of voting American adults just voted for Marxist Keynesianism?  

    Besides that, Trump had 4 years to replace Obama Care and finally decided that the status quo was acceptable.
