The Canadian View of American Health Care

Michel Kelly-Gagnon, of the Montreal Economic Institute:

The fact that the American system is […] more expensive than the Canadian system—to that I answer: A Mercedes is indeed more expensive than a Toyota Corolla. There are certain types of health treatments that are only available to the richest people, but because they are available and because you have people who are willing to pay for those treatments, then eventually they’ll become more economical and the whole world will benefit from it. So I say: Thank god that the U.S. has a more expensive system, because it’s the whole world who will benefit from it eventually. [Reason, October 4]
