Uwe Reinhardt on the health of the economy and the economics of health

My friend professor Uwe E. Reinhardt of Princeton University presented ECONOMIC TRENDS IN U.S HEALTH CARE: Implications for Investors, at  J.P. Morgan’s annual healthcare conference on Tuesday, January 13 2009.  The first half of the presentation (46 slides!) deals with macroeconomic and financial issues in Uwe’s inimitable style – equal portions of wit and insight.  The second half deals with the embarrassing mess known as health care in the US.

I warmly recommend a perusal of the whole enchilada.
