Additional health care spending does not make healther populations. “If you have more cardiologists in your community, you’ll have more cardiology visits. The more hospitals, the more doctors, the more imaging procedures, the more aggressive care at the end of life. The question is, what is the benefit?”

    The problem with this assessment, and I have no doubt that there is some “truth” to his contention, is that it suggests that in order to make people healthier we should spend less, and the less we spend, the healthier people get.

    This kind of reductionism is certainly provocative, but not actually very helpful at all.
