About shaunmiller

I have just completed a visiting position as an assistant professor at Dalhousie University. My ideas are not associated with my employer; they are expressions of my own thoughts and ideas. Some of them are just musings while others could be serious discussions that could turn into a bigger project. Besides philosophy, I enjoy martial arts (Kuk Sool Won), playing my violin, enjoying coffee around town, and experimenting with new food.

    Interesting graphic. An excellent way to present the data. Initially I went looking for the USA and wondered why we’d been left off. Then I realised that thin red line angling sharply down was us.

    On the face of the figures, it’s clear that something is very wrong. Yet I wonder if there’s a component of healthcare hidden away. I’ve heard it said that the cost of health procedures and hospital stays is inflated because for each paying patient, there are several who are treated on need for free.
