  •  Preventive medicine isn't profitable (0+ / 0-)

    At least with most US health care still geared towards curative and palliative medicine. I'm sure that there's money to be made on the preventive side too, although likely far less than is now the case. It's probably not unlike why fossil fuel-based energy companies don't want to convert to green energy because it'll be far less profitable. Or why warmaking is far more profitable than war prevention. Or why speculation is more profitable than investment in finance. Our entire economy is based on extraction, destruction and what passes for repair, not prevention and maintenance. It's slowly killing us.
