Martin Fey, MD from the University of Bern, Bern, Switzerland provides an overview of his thought-provoking presentation on ‘The costs of care in hematological cancers: health economic issues’, given at the International Conference on Malignant Lymphoma (ICML) 2017 held in Lugano, Switzerland. Prof. Fey explains the different types of costs associated with hematological cancer, which are by no means limited to the cost of drugs alone. Discussing the process of validating novel drugs and the design of clinical trials, Prof. Fey makes interesting comments on how health economics can be improved upon.
Why is health care so expensive? Once again, there are a lot of factors in play. Jacob and Adriene look at the many reasons that health care in the US is so expensive, and what exactly we get for all that money. Spoiler alert: countries that spend less and get better results are not that uncommon. Crash Course is on Patreon!

Although Angola is Africa's second largest oil producer after Nigeria, the country is one of the world's poorest nations. [Online until: 02.12.2018] Angola’s billions of oil dollars mainly lined the pockets of the family of President José Eduardo dos Santos, who ruled the country for 38 years. Angola's new president, João Lourenço, has vowed to fight corruption and help the country's poorest. But can he keep his promise? Angola is Africa's second largest oil exporter. Angola began its economic ascent after its 27-year civil war came to an end in 2002, and in 2017, Luanda became the world’s most expensive capital city. But Angola is marred by economic division. Angola’s billions of oil dollars mainly lined the pockets of the family of President José Eduardo dos Santos, who ruled for 38 years. Luanda’s multiplying skyscrapers and glittering facades showcase the wealth of a small, rich elite. While 55 percent of people in Angola are still poor and live on less than one dollar a day. In August last year, President José Eduardo dos Santos announced he would not be seeking re-election due to health reasons. Like dos Santos, his successor, João Lourenço, belongs to the People’s Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA). Lourenço has promised to fight corruption in Angola, and help the country’s poorest. Analysts have already raised doubts about his ability to make far-reaching change, however. Police currently stand accused of sending so-called death squads to kill young people in Luanda’s outskirts. Families are being relocated into tin huts, where they live under shocking conditions. And the country’s health care system is failing, as Angola’s child mortality rate climbs to one of the highest in the world. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Josh Sigurdson talks with author and economic analyst John Sneisen on location in Yellowstone National Park (Wyoming) regarding the massive population loss Wyoming has suffered as the state's economy continues to crash following chaos in the oil market which Wyoming is heavily dependent on. Oil prices are hovering around $42 a barrel. Wyoming is considered the worst economy in the United States. Casper, Wyoming itself dropped more than 1000 in population. The city of Casper is a hub for oil and gas fields and lost 1.6% of its population. In total, the Wyoming population dropped by 1,054 residents in 2016 which may not seem massive to some but it is for a state like Wyoming which is mostly taken up by wooded area and national parks like Yellowstone. The energy downturn will continue to drastically effect those that are heavily dependent on oil and unfortunately are forced to bow down to OPEC as government drives competitive fields out of the market via regulatory strangleholds and vast taxation.

Scientists in Britain are sounding the alarm on a potential public health crisis. They say by 2050, antimicrobial resistance could be more deadly than cancer. John Iadarola, Kim Horcher (Nerd Alert), and Cara Santa Maria, hosts of The Young Turks discuss. Are you worried about antimicrobial resistance? Let us know in the comments below. Read more here: http://www.theguardian.com/society/2016/apr/14/antimicrobial-resistance-greater-threat-cancer-2050-george-osborne?CMP=twt_gu “Antimicrobial resistance to antibiotics will present a greater danger to humankind than cancer by the middle of the century unless world leaders agree international action to tackle the threat, according to George Osborne. The British chancellor will tell a panel of experts at an IMF meeting in Washington that 10 million people a year could die across the world by 2050 – more than the number of people lost to cancer every year – without radical action. Osborne will warn of an enormous economic cost, which could cut global GDP by 3.5%, a cumulative cost of $100bn (£70bn). The chancellor will say: “Unless we take global action, antimicrobial resistance will become an even greater threat to mankind than cancer currently is.” *** Download audio and video of the full two hour show on-demand + the members-only post game show by becoming a member at http://www.tytnetwork.com/join/.

One in two adult Americans lives with at least one chronic condition such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease or dementia. Further, one in three live with two or more. The medical costs are staggering, but the drag on long-term economic growth and productivity losses associated with absenteeism and "presenteeism" for patients and informal caregivers are many times greater. Many chronic diseases are preventable. How much could we save in treatment costs and economic loss by modifying unhealthy behaviors such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption and drug abuse? How about the obesity epidemic? How much could we save by simply eating better and exercising more? Can the movement toward a value-based care delivery system--in which payers pay providers based not on procedures--but on health and cost-related outcomes, make a difference?

It's no secret that the cost of housing is high in urban areas like our own San Francisco Bay Area, New York, London, Hong Kong, and Mumbai. However, the cost of rent accounts for an even higher percentage of a household's income in cities located in developing countries where the cost of housing can exceed 100% income. The problem of overpopulation, high rents, and low wages is made worse by the private sector in these locations. Housing is now a global industry that accounts for 217 trillion dollars or 60% of total global income. Giant corporations and private equity firms are investing in the housing market and have increased not the supply of affordable homes but rather the number of high-end luxury units that are only viable for the ultra-rich. Those that would benefit the most from increased economic potential that cities provide have no means of affording a home in which to live while investing in their future. What are cities around the world doing to address their housing problem and how can more economically sustainable urban centers be built? How can the private sector better contribute to solving the global housing crisis? Does the growth of cities and lack of housing drive inequality? What lessons can San Francisco learn from other cities as it battles its own crisis? Join Karen Chapple, Professor of City and Regional Planning at the University of California, Berkeley, and Adhi Nagraj, San Francisco Director of SPUR, to discuss these questions and to address the ways in which urban planners, policymakers, and real estate stakeholders might work to provide better housing for the 1.6 billion people who live in substandard homes and the 100 million who are homeless.

Global health and public health practitioners use Health Economics to better understand the decisions that get made that affect health. Calculating the DALYs averted or QALYs gained for per dollar spent, for example, can help NGOs and Governments decide which health interventions to invest in. These sorts of cost utility and cost effectiveness (economic evaluations) help with decision making. Support for the creation of this video came from DCP3.

The United States and 11 other Pacific Rim nations reached an agreement Monday on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the largest regional trade accord in history. The agreement has been negotiated for eight years in secret and will encompass 40 percent of the global economy. Vermont senator and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders issued a statement calling TPP “disastrous” and vowed to fight it in Congress. One sticking point on the TPP had been the so-called death sentence clause, extending drug company monopolies on medicines. The United States and drug companies had pressed for longer monopolies on new biotech drugs, while multiple countries opposed the push, saying it could deny life-saving medicines to patients who cannot afford high prices. The compromise reportedly includes monopolies of between five and eight years. Last week in Atlanta, Zahara Heckscher, a cancer patient, disrupted TPP negotiations and was arrested as she demanded access to the secret text to see whether it includes a "death sentence clause." Heckscher joins us to talk about her arrest and why she says “it would actually condemn women to death.” Democracynow.org - Democracy Now!, is an independent global news hour that airs weekdays on 1,300+ TV and radio stations Monday through Friday.

Republicans love to cite the costs of addressing climate change as a major reason to ignore the problem. But the reality is that the costs of ignoring the problem are staggering. According to new research, the climate change denial from the Trump administration could potentially cost us about $100 trillion due to the collapse of the carbon bubble and natural disasters. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains. Link – http://www.thedailybeast.com/trumps-climate-change-denial-could-cost-us-dollar100-trillion?source=twitter&via=desktop Ring of Fire needs your help!

LIKE and SHARE this video or leave a comment to help direct attention to the stories that matter. And SUBSCRIBE to stay connected with Ring of Fire's video content! Among the very few Republicans in this country who actually accept that climate change is happening and that human beings are making it worse, they tell us that we still can't act on it because it's just going to cost too darn much money. There's nothing we can do about it because that's a big cost, and we don't want corporations to have to pay it. We don't want taxpayers to have to foot the bill to keep this country safe from rising sea levels and monster storms that are coming at an alarming rate. No. Well, guess what, Republicans? A new study has come out and it said that the cost of Donald Trump's climate change denial ... His refusal to do anything about the problem ... Is going to end up costing us about $100 trillion, and that total $100 trillion is going to come from several different areas. The first and most obvious is from direct damage caused by climate related events, such as Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Hurricane Jose is still kicking around out there in the Atlantic ocean, and we have no idea what that one's going to do, where it's going go to go, or if it's even going to make landfall. But things like that cost money. The wildfires in the west right now, those are going to cost federal dollars. We have to fix it. We have to negate it. We have to prevent it, and we have to stop it, more importantly. So that's where a large chunk of the money is going to come from. But the second part mentioned in a new Daily Beast article is something that very few people have discussed, and that is the carbon bubble. In case you're not familiar with it, basically what that is, what a bubble is is when the price of a good grossly exceeds its actual market value, which is what's happening right now around the globe with fossil fuels. Eventually that bubble bursts. Doesn't seem like such a big deal. The price goes down, right? Well, when you consider the fact that one third of global assets are invested in fossil fuel companies, fossil fuel stocks, that bubble amounts to worldwide economic devastation with close to one third of the entire wealth of the planet completely wiped out overnight. A lot of billionaires suddenly become broke. Millionaires lose everything. Fossil fuel companies shut their doors, and while, yeah, for the most part that doesn't matter to most of us, we need fossil fuel companies shut down. I have no sympathy for millionaires and billionaires who have been coddled by our government for too long. It will have obvious ripple effects throughout the global economy, sending countless people, hundreds of millions most likely, into a deep depression. The reason this is even happening is again ... Goes back to Donald Trump's climate change denial and his refusal to allow the federal government to fully invest in renewable energy, and away from fossil fuels. Trump has made it clear that he wants to double down on fossil fuels here in the United States. He wants to revamp the coal industry and open up new coal mines, even though nobody around the planet is buying coal anymore. The renewable energy sector here in the United States is growing faster than any other energy sector in the world, and yet Trump doesn't want to invest in it. Republicans don't want to invest in it. They think it's a waste of time, effort, and money. Well, you know what's going to be a waste of money? When you cost us $100 trillion because you refused to take the advice of scientists and experts basically because you refused to listen to people who are smarter than you. Because you're so damn arrogant and smug that you can't stand the thought that somebody out there knows more than you do.

The latest Ebola crisis proved that health systems are equipped to contain a major outbreak of infectious disease. In an increasingly connected world, highly contagious diseases travel across porous borders without notice. The cost in lives and economic growth can be enormous. Diseases such as malaria can stunt GDP growth by nearly 1.5 percent and tuberculosis can trigger a drop of 4 percent to 6 percent. For some diseases, such as Ebola, health services are handicapped because there is no vaccine to prevent its spread or drug to cure those who have it. Pharmaceutical companies have little financial incentive to develop medicines for diseases found mostly in poor countries. Panelists will explore the human and economic consequences of infectious disease and how incentives can encourage investment to find effective treatments.

With U.S. health care costs surpassing $3 trillion a year -- an unsustainable 20% of the American economy -- we all must find ways to cut costs. At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Dr. John H. Noseworthy, head of the famed Mayo Clinic, explains how the latest advances in computer science offer a promising solution, where better collection and understanding of the billions of data points generated by medical research and treatments can improve patient "outcomes" and lead more effective and affordable health care for millions of people.

VOTE for MoMo Scientific in the Dell Social Innovation Challenge!! http://www.dellchallenge.org/projects/preventing-cervical-cancer Cervical cancer is the third most common cancer in the world where 88% of all cases occur in the developing world. With approximately 600,000 new cases every year, this silent killer is responsible for over 250,000 deaths/year, making it the second leading cause of womens' cancer deaths in developing countries. While cervical cancer has largely been eradicated in the developed world with the incorporation of regular screening and new opportunities for vaccinations, it remains a large burden in the developing world due to inadequate healthcare infrastructure, high costs, and the lack of an appropriate technology for treatment. The economic burden of cervical cancer in the developing world is approximately $300 million each year. Momo Scientific is a social venture medical device company dedicated to reducing womens' deaths through the prevention of cervical cancer. We have partnered with Jhpiego, a John's Hopkins University affiliated NGO focused on improving womens' health, to develop and distribute the CryoPop. The CryoPop is a patent-pending low-cost medical device, which uses dry ice for the treatment of cervical pre-cancerous lesions in low-resource settings. The CryoPop relies only on carbon dioxide tanks already available in developing countries because of soda companies, and is 10 times cheaper, 10 times more efficient, and more effective & reliable than the currently utilized technology. Momo Scientific intends to distribute the CryoPop within India and Sub-Saharan Africa. In fact, with 50% of the economic burden of cervical cancer being attributed to productivity losses, and 21% of the burden being attributed to palliative care, health ministries of these countries would desire a low-cost method for reducing this burden. Along with Jhpiego, we plan to tackle the problems associated with costly and timely diagnosis and treatment of cervical cancer, to potentially prevent over 250,000 womens' deaths per year.

Josh Sigurdson talks with author and economic analyst John Sneisen about the indefensible destructiveness of the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) as it's been a cancer on the American people since 1913 when the IRS Act was passed around the same time as The Federal Reserve Act. Monetary manipulation goes hand in hand with the extortion system known as the IRS. Recently, the IRS lost a $175 million class action lawsuit including more than 700,000 people and businesses to recover allegedly unlawful license fees paid to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Nearly three years later, the plaintiffs got a win after Judge Royce C. Lamberth ruled that "all fees that the defendant has charged to class members to issue and renew a PTIN ... are hereby declared unlawful." The potential cost to the IRS? $175 million. Josh and John go into why taxation is theft and why it's not necessary. From "Who'll build the roads?" to how it affects businesses and promotes an impoverished society and how a voluntary society with voluntary community funding is far better than the statist extortion racket. Both on a moral and logical level, taxation is wrong and an attack on free individuals. Stay tuned for more from WAM!

Remember the opening scene to the amazing Nick Cage movie Lord of War? The one where you follow the life of a bullet from its birth in a factory to its shipment from the Soviet Union to the jungles of Africa? When I watched that I was mesmerized. Almost all of our material goods make a similar journey. From the extraction of raw materials found in the Earth, to their production in a factory most likely somewhere in Asia, to the retail store that you or I can head to down the street. My Mic: http://amzn.to/2mj7P3j Subscribe To My Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoFWz1e3VXKOoJ-E5cep1Eg Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Thought.Monkey.Community/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thought.monkey/ Music: L'indécis - Day by Day Script: The last time you looked at your T-shirt tag you probably noticed that it was made in China, or Bangladesh, or Pakistan, or…wherever - you get the point. But have you stopped to ask yourself why they never say England, or France, or the U.S.? Well as most of us probably know already it has to do with cost. But that’s only part of the story. Awhile back I read an interesting article on NPR that talked about the journey of a t-shirt. In their investigations they found that the cotton for most t-shirts are grown in either China, India or surprisingly the U.S. in places like Texas. If the cotton is grown in the U.S. it is then shipped over 7,000 miles to China or India where the milling process begins which transforms the plant cotton into yarn or sheets. From there it is shipped another 1,800 miles to Bangladesh where it is sewn into shirts by workers who are paid $40 a month in super sketchy conditions. In 2013 for example a factory collapsed and killed 1,100 garment workers. Most popular clothing companies like Gap, Walmart, Target and well pretty much every store you can think of rely heavily on suppliers from this region. When sewn the shirts are shipped another 8,000 miles back to the U.S. where they are delivered to retailers, folded neatly by workers who are paid whatever the minimum wage in your city is and sold for $20 bucks a pop. The estimated miles traveled for any given t-shirt from cotton farm to retail store? About 16,000 miles. $20 bucks for an item that has seen more of the world than you or I have? Not bad. But why does this happen and how is it a viable economic model? During the 19th century the process of industrialization began which was basically the time when everyday household items became easier to make with the use of machines and standardization and allowed the prices of items to decrease making it more affordable for the public to buy. Along with this there was a transportation revolution with the invention of the steam engine making shipping using boats or trains much cheaper. At the same time Europeans were busy conquering the world which had the sometimes very unwanted effect of integrating parts of the world with other parts of the world. But nonetheless it happened and here we are. Because of this more and more nations began to embrace international trade while at the same time vigorously competing with each other to gain economic and military dominance over one another and their colonies. Eventually this competition grew to a tipping point and WWI happened. Then WWII happened. Then the Cold War. Finally after the Cold War when most major government decided to just chill the f*ck out, a period of rapid globalization happened. But it was really after the agreements made by the international community after WWII, that laid the foundation to the kind of globalization that we know and either love or hate or have no opinion about today. Most countries agreed to an international monetary policy which basically has made it easier for countries to trade with each other by eliminating or reducing taxes. This led to other economic agreements between the international community and eventually the World Trade Organization which currently provides a system for countries to make trade agreements with one another. There are also other bilateral agreements between countries – for example the U.S. and South Korea has a Free Trade Agreement which eliminates 95% of taxes or NAFTA between Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. which probably ruined the lives of millions of poor corn farmers in Mexico – but that’s a story for another time.

In a recent MIT Leaders for Global Operations webinar titled "Can Financial Engineering Cure Cancer?", MIT Sloan Professor Andrew Lo described how the same tools that were used to catastrophically inflate U.S. mortgage debt markets could be used to fuel a "cancer megafund" to distribute the risks and rewards of breakthrough research across the vast global bond market. Lo, who directs MIT's Laboratory for Financial Engineering and also leads a hedge fund he created in 2003, is noted for applying tools from various disciplines to provide new insights on key issues in finance. In recent years, driven by the impact of cancer on friends and family members, he wondered if the resources of global capital markets could be used to accelerate progress toward solving pressing global challenges in health and energy. Working from his expertise in financial markets, Lo described his concept for how the greed and financial engineering that drove a six-fold increase in U.S. mortgage debt in the 2000s might be focused to more altruistic aims. Recognizing that a huge global bond market—vastly bigger than the venture capital market—is looking for ways to secure reasonable returns, Lo proposed a $30 billion cancer megafund that would invest in more than 150 promising drug development projects. He discussed his cancer proposal recently with both the Economist and the Boston Globe. In his presentation, Lo demonstrated that spreading the typical cost, risk and return on cancer drugs across such a broad range of potential successes would present very attractive potential rates of return to bond investors. This potential fund would address the current negative trend for investment in biotech, driven by very long development timelines as well as dry cancer-drug development pipelines. While $30 billion is not a very large target in the context of global bond and sovereign wealth investment resources, it's equal to the current overall budget for the National Institutes of Health—and, more importantly, it would provide a longer-term horizon than venture capital investors now offer for drug development efforts. In response to a question by an LGO student about the governance procedures that would be needed to prevent a "cancer bubble" along the lines of the housing bubble, Lo said that despite the lessons learned from the housing finance crisis, "the price of innovation may be some false positives." However, he added, with proper oversight and financial structuring, the net impact of the cancer megafund would be overwhelmingly positive, particularly in light of declining governmental support for such research. Lo, who was recognized by Time as one of the World's 100 Most Influential People, is convening a conference this June at MIT on the cancer megafund project with key stakeholders from the biotech industry, government, the investment community, and cancer researchers. More details will be forthcoming soon on his website.
