A “Gross” Domestic Product
By Rick Redalen, M.D.
The U.S. spends 14 percent of its Gross Domestic Product on health care. Unfortunately, many Americans have no health insurance and must either pay for medical care out of their pockets or go without. This occurs despite federal and state expenditure of hundreds of billions of dollars to provide health care.
We rank number 37 in the world of countries rated on percentage of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) spent on education and 38 in the world on healthcare. Cuba ranks above the United States in neonatal (the first 28 days of an infant’s life) mortality. Even Cuba, Malaysia, Kenya, Malawi and Swaziland rank ahead of us, just to name a few. Cuba spends 18.7 percent of its GDP on education compared to just over 5 percent for the US. More
