    Well, contrary to the thread title, those claiming that the US has a better standard of health care than Britain, and hence that a private system works better than publicly funded health care can now shut the **** up, as a new report states that the US is currently ranked 42nd on the Human Development Index.

    (Original post by BBC News)
    The report found that the US ranked 42nd in the world for life expectancy despite spending more on health care per person than any other country.

    The implict assumption that healthcare quality directly correlates to life expectancy is clearly wrong - lifestyle factors are also influential and Americans do not live very healthy lifestyles, on average.

    Incredible that a film by Michael Moore would show a privatised system in a negative light.
