what if there isn’t a healthcare crisis?

February 20, 2010

what if we aren’t having a healthcare crisis? What if we are having an economy shift from valuing shiny objects i.e the gold standard into an economy based on human health. That actually makes more objective sense than the gold standard, the focus being shiny thing=value to the focus becoming human health and well being = value. The main characteristics of a monetary base are utility, objective value, portability. What if the new “gold” standard is the drugs we are all dependent upon? What is insulin worth to a diabetic? More than gold? ? What about chemo if your mother has cancer? What are antidepressants worth to you? What if this is the next logical and positivel evolution of humankind, to be more concerned with their own health than hoarding shiny things? hmmm….
