Social Justice Film Series
The U.S. spends twice as much per person on healthcare as the average developed nation – 17.5% of our GDP – yet our outcomes, especially for chronic diseases, are very often worse. What makes us the exception? The U.S. is the only industrialized nation that has chosen to turn medicine into a largely unregulated, for-profit business. This film offers a systemic look at the economics underlying – and often undermining — our $2.6 trillion healthcare system.
