Interview with health care reformer Dr. Susan Rosenthal on her recent book, Sick and Sicker. This week she discusses the horrors of life in England during the Industrial Revolution (ca. 1845), the problems with Canada's single-payer healthcare system (though it's still better than the U.S. system), how the profit motive and computers have brought us "assembly-line medicine," and the health-care reforms established in Chile, under Allende, in the 1970s. Originally broadcast in August 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 #128--is taken from my phone conversation with Rosenthal of July 2, 2010.
