Why are American health care costs so high?

ORIGINAL: By the incomparable John Green, who says the following about his sources: “For a much more thorough examination of health care expenses in America, I recommend this series at The Incidental Economist and The Commonwealth Fund’s Study of Health Care Prices in the U.S. Some of the stats in this video also come from this New York Times story.”

One thought on “Why are American health care costs so high?

  1. Prices (not costs) are so high because everyone along the line in the supply chain thinks they deserve to be rich, and they add on enough profit to make themselves rich. And since they operate as a monopoly where the customer has to take it or leave it (and maybe die) they get their profit.
