Medicare for all and economics

1 post / 0 new

I f we can remove some of the costs associated with products that we trade globally, Medicare for all could make us more competitive with the rest of the world. Medicare costs would be absorbed through some kind of taxation, but as long as we still have the so-called free trade, we will always be more expensive if we do not remove the outrageous costs of present day insurance from the costs of goods.

The report explains that while global wealth has more than doubled since the year 2000, the vast majority of overall growth has gone to those who were already wealthy.
