NPR: The best 39 minutes you can spend understanding the various national health systems
http://healthpolicyandmarket.blogspot.com/2007/07/best-...

>>
NPR's "Fresh Air" broadcast a 39-minute interview with Jonathan Oberlander, a political scientist with expertise in health care politics and policy and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Studying other systems is important as we in America look to reform our health care system. Unfortunately, we hear many things out of context and some outright myths.

Listening to Professor Oberlander, I came away impressed that I had listened to one of the most informed and dispassionate discussions of the U.S. health care system, as well as many of the other industrialized systems we have heard about.

If you want a straight down-the-middle 39-minute tour de force of leading international health care systems, as well as our own, give it a listen.
