I am a Ph. D student at Marquette University. The primary purpose of this blog is to get my ideas out there, and then have other people scrutinize, critique, build upon, and systematize beliefs. This blog will sometimes pertain to what I'm learning in my classes, but it will occasionally deal with non-classroom issues that I'm thinking about as well.

    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.
