Of Note

New study, published in the JAMA shows that Americans are sicker than English. Yeah, we already knew that.... I wonder how much of this can be attributed to the accessibility of medical treatment and services. If newer services are available, reasonably priced, and more abundant are they not used more frequently like all other goods and services?

Sorry, couldn't find the study on the JAMA website, but here's the article.

Also, check out the May 2006 National Economic Trends provided by the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank. It's always good to know what's happening. Don't worry, it's mostly just charts. Make sure to check out the front page though: Cross-Country Personal Saving Rates.

Somebody want to answer me why American's personal savings rate is in the negative?

How are they measuring this? By the number of people that go to the doctor? How about the number of people who actually need a doctor?
I'd believe we were sicker anyway. Are we all so self depreciating? Hey - I found my identity!
You gotta find it then pass it along to the rest of us to answer those questions.
