Is Health Care in America As Market-Oriented As France's?
There's something that I haven't seen discussed and yet seems striking to me: how similar the French and U.S. healthcare systems are. On its face, this seems like a preposterous notion: whenever the two are mentioned together, it's to say that they're polar opposites. France has been called the best healthcare system in the world by the World Health Organization. And if there's something everyone in the U.S. seems to agree on, it's that U.S. healthcare, well, horribly sucks, although they strongly disagree about why and what to do about it. And yet, to me, the similarities are glaring.
