Health care costs?
U.S. business leaders say hobbled by healthcare costsThe Business Roundtable, which represents the largest U.S. corporations, released a study showing that for every $100 spent in the United States on healthcare, a group of five leading economic competitors — Canada, Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom and France — spend about 63 cents.The article states that for every $100 dollars spent by the US on healthcare, 5 chief competitors spend 66 cents. I think they’ve changed their units mid-stream and that it should be $66 dollars per $100 or 66 cents per dollar.D.R.A number of readers noticed this one. We corrected: GBU Editor
