Interview with health care reformer Dr. Susan Rosenthal on her recent book, Sick and Sicker. This week she discusses the root cause of much disease--social inequality--and (as she sees it) the root cause of that: capitalism. She also discuses the practice of psychiatry, why depression is so common (and so poorly treated), and why, each year, for-profit medicine kills 23 times as many Americans as criminal use of firearms. Originally broadcast in July 2010.
Susan's book, "Sick and Sicker: Essays on Class, Health and Health Care," is available in paperback (from her) or as a "Kindle" electronic book from Amazon.com. For more information, see http://www.susanrosenthal.com
"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "aegis") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
This installment--a rebroadcast of NWN #123--is taken from my phone conversation with Rosenthal of July 2, 2010.
