Sample text

They will argue that, since every dollar amount paid in healthcare is influenced by something other than a pure, free-market price, when you add them up, “no one knows what the aggregate number really means”—somehow obfuscating the fact that the aggregate number means what it says it means: when you add up the actual amount of cash that we paid for healthcare, here it is. And it is really huge. Economists of this bent will cherry-pick their analytical tools until they find one that makes it look like what the United States spends is somehow normal.

In other words, to use a semi-log regression is to assume that there is some reason why healthcare should not just cost more in a richer country, but vastly more than other countries that are nearly as rich. It’s an argument that assumes its outcome. The actual arithmetic is pretty straightforward: the United States not only spends more than other countries, but it spends about 50% more than its wealth suggests it should spend. When we encounter arguments that seem to say that 2 + 2 = 5, that suggest that the United States somehow spends less on healthcare than other countries “regardless of its reported spending,”† or that the United States is getting a great deal for its spending, it is reasonable to step back and wonder about the motives of people who would make such transparently strange arguments cloaked in dense mathematical language.
