The Economics of US Healthcare, a Giant Ponzi Scheme? / Economics / Healthcare Sector

By: MISES

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGilbert G. Berdine writes: According to the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), national health expenditures were $2.5 trillion in 2009, or $8,086 per person. The usual critique of US healthcare discusses how the money is spent and argues that it could be better spent in other ways.

I will not discuss how the money is spent, because value is subjective. Instead, I will show that the United States cannot afford what it spends, and, as a result, the US healthcare system is a credit-induced bubble.

By: Doug_Horning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoug Hornig, Casey Extraordinary Technology writes: With cancer, early detection equals a greater likelihood that treatment will have a positive outcome.

Physicians have known this for a long time, and the statistics back them up. Survival rates for those afflicted with many types of cancer have risen dramatically in the past few decades. And one of the primary reasons is that we are diagnosing cancer earlier and with much greater accuracy.

Healthcare Stocks Taking Off as Tech Companies Tumble / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJon D. Markman wrtes: Technology and commodities companies have been among the hardest hit over the past few weeks, as major players move from cyclical stocks to more defensive areas like healthcare stocks.

In the technology sector, the worst of the sell-off has been in the optical stocks. That's a shame because many of these stocks finally looked like they were on the verge of emerging from long bear markets. But the optical stocks - so popular during the tech bubble - were kicked in the head whenFinisar Corp.(Nasdaq: FNSR) issued a very weak outlook for its April quarter.

The Effects of ObamaCare, Unintended Consequences of Health Care Reform / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat will be the effects of ObamaCare? My friend Lisa Cummings, an expert on employee benefits (she was one of the first employees at Dell and was a senior exec at Wal-Mart), has analyzed the bill; and from what she tells me it appears to be one big pile of unintended consequences and costs. It will be far cheaper for an employer to simply pay the $2,000 fine and pay for the employee to enroll in the government health exchange program, which of course puts more cost on the taxpayer. Behind the curtain of wonderful and laudable objectives is a mountain of regulations and costs. But that is what is coming. I asked Lisa to give me a written report on just the more important changes and costs, and that is your Outside the Box reading today.

Health Care Industry is all About Maximising Profit / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Pravda

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOnce upon a time in America, people became doctors and nurses because they wanted to help people, building hospitals was a labor of love, lawyers didn't chase ambulances, health insurance companies did not openly abuse their customers and greedy pharmaceutical companies did not dominate the entire health care industry. But today all of that has changed. Why do most people choose a career in the health care industry today? It is because they want to make a lot of money and live a comfortable lifestyle.

America’s Healthcare Mafia Strikes Again / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Mike_Stathis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDid you get a raise in 2009? 

CEOs of the nation’s largest health insurers most certainly did; CIGNA, UnitedHealth, Humana and Wellpoint. In fact, as a reward for many years of excessive hikes to insurance premiums executed under his leadership, Edward Hanway, the former CEO of CIGNA was provided with a retirement package worth $110.9 million, paid for by the excessive and unnecessarily high insurance premiums billed to CIGNA’s policy holders.

Health Care Sector, the Ultimate Hedge in Economic Crisis / Stock-Markets / Healthcare Sector

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week we have a really counter-intuitive Outside the Box. I was talking with the editor of Breakthrough Technology Alert, Patrick Cox about health care costs and he made some very interesting observations from new research about health care. It seems healthy people pay more for health care than sick people. I asked him to do a write-up for us. Despite the new health care bill that passed, health care costs are going to go up, not down. And that's a good thing, as Pat explains. You really want to read this.

Put Patients and Doctors Back in Control of Healthcare / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Most everyone agrees that health care in the United States has major problems, the biggest problems relating to skyrocketing costs. No one doubts the system is in need of reform. However, too many in Washington see tighter government controls as the solution. In fact, the problems are rooted in past government controls that created more problems than they solved.
