    A question:  I wonder what the trend in health care costs are in these other countries vs. US?  Here in the US, costs are still escalating, almost out of control, mostly because of the inherent structure of our health care system.  Are costs reined in elsewhere, or is this also an issue?

    The most violent element in society is ignorance.

      It's an issue everywhere. In many countries what I've heard, there were a very good series of documentaries about health care systems around the world when the ACA battle, was from medical professionals complaining of not earning enough or from institutions saying they have to cut a lot in services. Now with the world austerity many have cut services quite a bit or established copays where there where non.

      Health care for everyone for everything is very desirable but really expensive, particularly now that we are extending life quite a bit, those last years are the most expensive of them all.
