The Economy & America’s Health Care Mess

For Economics this week (April 13 to 17) we will take a good long look at America’s Health Care system and how it impacts the Economy and lives of us everyday normal Americans.

Family Health Care Survey – Please take this Health Care Survey home with you, and talk with your parents about yours and their current health care plan. Although the survey is due on Monday April 20, it would help in your understanding of the American Health Care system if you went over it with your parents ASAP.

Weekly Schedule

Monday – we will present our RWE assignments on Health Care in USA to the class.

Tuesday thru Thursday – we will watch the movie Sicko which takes a good long indepth look at the problems in the American Health Care system.

Tuesday thru Thursday – we will watch the movie Sicko which takes a good long indepth look at the problems in the American Health Care system.

Friday – we will have a nice long chat on how best to clean up this mess.

Meanwhile – I want you to read the Time Magazine cover story for December 1 “The Sorry State of American Health”. The following links provide you PDF copies of the main article, five graphs, and a series of questions. I have hard copies, however in the name of saving paper and trees and babies I have a limited amount.  Also, the PDF’s are in color and can be enlarged, thus they are more effective.  Your call, however I would hope you would choose on the side of humanity.

The assignment is due on Friday.
