On today’s radio show we discuss Los Angeles’s animal killing machine, and Humana’s human killing machine. Carol Davis, Howie Klein, John Matthews and Michael Snyder. Originally broadcast 4/25/14.
Picking up on the Howie Klein piece re Health insurance and pharmaceutical funding – the elephant in that room is the pharmaceutical industry and the prices they charge for drugs – $24,000 for a six month course! – here in Australia, Howie would need to be gaining the equivalent of an extra year of life for the government to fund that drug (unless it is a particularly rare condition he has) – this does not mean the drug would not be funded, but that Pharma reduce the price to the point at which the drug provides value for money – from a societal perspective, i.e. based on the health gains that could be gotten from spending the $24,000 on other forms of healthcare (it’s opportunity cost).
Enjoying the longer less often format.
When will the Ralph Nadar hour be on iTunes, or can I download that from somewhere else?
