The Economic Impact of Chronic Disease: The Case for Prevention, Early Detection and Better Management Moderator Ross DeVol, Chief Research Officer, Milken Institute Speakers Nancy Brown, CEO, American Heart Association Neal Kaufman, Chief Medical Officer, Canary Health; Adjunct Professor of Medicine and Public Health, University of California, Los Angeles Kristen Miranda, Senior Vice President, Strategic Partnerships and Innovation, Blue Shield of California Hugh Waters, Health Economist and Associate Professor, University of North Carolina Schools of Nursing and Public Health Otis Webb Brawley, Chief Medical and Scientific Officer, Executive Vice President, American Cancer Society The growing burden of chronic disease is a costly threat to patients, their families and the economy. 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?

PUBLISHED ON OCTOBER 16, 2011 In Europe, as in the US, governments are seeking to shift the cost of the global economic crisis onto the mass of people by cutting public employment and public services. However, the levels of those services in Europe are far higher than in the US and their governments are cutting far less than in the US. What accounts for these differences are mass organizations. In Europe the anti-austerity movement is led by the labor unions and large sections of large socialist parties, significant communist parties, and various other anti-capitalist and green parties. These institutions have not suffered the declines that have afflicted their US counterparts over recent decades. Hence, they can and do fight back against and sharply reduce the size and pace of austerity inflicted upon Europeans. Original Video: http://rdwolff.com/content/special-comments-short-clips .......

Min Zhu, deputy managing director at the International Monetary Fund, discusses ongoing structural changes in the global economy. In this video for the World Economic Forum, Min Zhu, exposes the deep scars and challenges left by the recent financial crisis, and says global cooperation for structural reform will be key for a return to growth. Watch the full presentation above, or read some quotes below. On underperforming economies “The global GDP level today is a big drop and it remains under the trend. This is a big gap - we lost all those global GDP in the past seven or eight years permanently. This is very important to understand. This crisis leaves a much deeper scar than anyone ever thought across the whole world, even emerging markets. We permanently lost such a big chunk of real global GDP forever. So we operate the whole global economy at a lower level, that's a very important concept. Because of that all the countries today run under their potential output, so they have an output gap.” “You see all the advanced economies run under their potential, roughly by one and a half a percent. Even in advanced economies, China is still one percentage point under their potential. The whole world runs under their potential, and the output gap is still quite big.” “Why do we have such low potential growth? Number one, investments are lower. In the US and Europe, investments are lower. Investments are only higher in China, Brazil and Russia. But in China’s investments are way too high, and need further adjustment. Also trade growth is slower. Trade growth is normally always stronger than global growth rates, but now trade growth is slower than global GDP growth for the first time in thirty years.” On potential for growth “The real issues we tried to figure out what will be the potential growth for the next five years? When we talk about potential growth, basically we talk about the potential capital, and productivity growth rates. Potential growth is a concept to match the capacity, to match how much the system can grow. This is a very important concept - this is the base for the growth.” “Why then do we see the potential capital growth weakening, which is showing investments as lower. We see the labor supplies have weakened dramatically in advanced economies, because of demographic changes and ageing. The issue is that productivity growth is weakening over the whole world. Productivity growth is lower everywhere: in advanced economies, in US, in Europe, in the UK, emerging markets in China in Brazil, Russia, everywhere.” “The key issue is how can we promote productivity growth? If you look for the five years, you’ll see the potential growth still depends heavily on the productivity growth. That's the real challenge for the next five years. Because emerging market lost quite a bit of potential growth rates. Why have emerging markets slowed down? That’s very simple. In the past ten years, oil and commodity prices have been much higher, and they are now lower. The food price was high. So the commodity cycle is over, and trade value is much lower today. It’s the same for advanced economy. So the external environment is really changed because super commodity cycle is over, trade is weaker and lower interest rate environment is over. Those are big changes with an impact on emerging markets. Advanced economies also have a negative impact on emerging markets and vice versa. We really live together now; we are all linked together.” On debt “When we move to financial sectors, what we saw is that central bank balances expanded dramatically, particularly in Japan and in all the advanced economies. Roughly an increase from 5% of GDP to 15% of GDP. The key figure is the government debt level. The government debt is way higher than WW1 level, and almost as high as WW2. It’s hard to believe how high governments debts are today. Even in emerging market, debt level is way too high. The high debt level has quite a few impacts. The one key issue is when you have high debt, you have to pay high interest rates. In advanced economies is 2007, the total government debt was 71.6% of GDP. Today, it’s roughly 104.6 % of GDP, so debt has increased roughly 40%. But interest payments were 2.9% in 2007 and are 2.9% today. So, debt has increased by 40% but interest rates remain very low.”

Countries can reduce the staggering burden of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), and save and generate resources for health and other services, by investing in measures to prevent and treat conditions like heart and lung disease, cancer and diabetes. The UN Interagency Task Force on NCDs, co-led by WHO and UNDP, is conducting investment cases in countries to demonstrate the massive costs associated with NCDs and cost-effective measures that can be taken to promote health and reduce human suffering and economic losses from these diseases.

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.

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.

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.

Please Read Below For More Information Anything with the word nuclear next to it usually comes with a fair bit of misunderstanding. Hopefully this video demystifies the process of how nuclear fuels are turned into electricity and how we can use them in combination with renewables in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the effects on the climate that come with high levels of them. Of course, there are many things that have been left out this video as nuclear energy, just as with any other source, has many different factors that need to be taken into account when making decisions. In order to fully understand the situation and make decisions, I highly recommend that you do some research of your own on the topic, rather than simply base your opinion on a four-minute YouTube video. It should also be noted that this video has been made from the perspective of the United States in general. Every area on Earth has different natural resources and environments that determine what works best there.

About Cervical Cancer Cancer is a global epidemic in present age. Globally, cancer is one of the leading causes of mortality, second only to cardiovascular diseases, with 7.6 million people dying of cancer in 2005. 11' Three quarters of these deaths were in low-to middle-income group countries. The number is expected to increase to 9 million deaths by 2015, and to 11.5 million deaths by 2030. According to a report by LIVESTRONG and the American Cancer Society, the global economic burden of cancer caused premature deaths and disability was a whopping $895 billion in 2008, which is 1.5% of the world's GDP and 18% more than the cost of heart diseases. Cancer can be caused by modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors. More than one third of all cancer deaths can be prevented. The main preventable risk factors of cancer include smoking and tobacco use, lifestyle related factors like sedentary lifestyle, improper diet, obesity, being overweight, infections from cancer causing viruses like HPV and Hepatitis B virus, exposure to environmental pollutants like arsenic, coal smoke, aflatoxins, asbestos, and radiation exposure. Infections are associated with 22% cancer related deaths in developing countries and 6% cancer deaths in developed countries. Hepatitis B and C are linked to cancer of the liver, human papilloma virus causes cervical cancer, and Helicobacterium pylori increases the risk of stomach cancer. Increasing awareness about hygiene, prophylactic measures like vaccination can help decrease the risk of cancer caused by infectious agents Environmental pollutants like arsenic, coal fire smoke aflatoxins and occupational carcinogens like asbestos have also been linked to certain types of cancers. Prevention is better than cure, hence reduction in modifiable risk factors listed above is the best way to reduce one's risk towards cancer. However, what cannot be prevented must be cured. In case of cancer, the treatment options available today are very limited in terms of being capable of providing the complete cure . Symptoms of cancer cervix are bleeding, pain during intercourse, discharge etc and is usually discovered very late. Treatment includes surgery, Radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

(A LIVESTRONG video) One in eight deaths worldwide is due to cancer. There are glaring disparities between rich and poor in both incidence and death from cancer, as well as in the pain, suffering, and stigma associated with the disease. The Global Task Force on Expanded Access to Cancer Care and Control in Developing Countries is working to address these inequities and debunk the myths about cancer care and control in resource-poor settings. Delivering Hope: Cancer Care in the Developing World is a LIVESTRONG film highlighting survivor stories from Rwanda, Jordan and Mexico to describe how existing health systems designed to treat infectious diseases can be strengthened to address the urgent and growing cancer burden.

Our world runs on rules of engagement drawn from past success. This holds for nations dealing with other nations, the same way it does for people engaging with one another and for citizens with their governments. What happens, however, when those who won previously no longer win now? Are we looking into a new set of global powers soon in the future who are not a part of the western world? Danny Quah is Li Ka Shing Professor of Economics at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy. Quah served as LSE’s Head of Department for Economics (2006-2009), and Council Member on Malaysia’s National Economic Advisory Council (2009-2011). Quah’s research interests include income inequality, economic growth, and international economic relations.

Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2009/12/11/Thomas_Sowell_Intellectuals_and_Society Author Thomas Sowell argues that public demand for intellectuals is largely manufactured by intellectuals themselves. He says intellectuals make alarming predictions using causes like global warming to create a need for their services. ----- Thomas Sowell introduces his new book Intellectuals and Society and expounds on what he calls "the fatal misstep of intellectuals" -- the assumption that superior ability within a particular realm can be generalized as superior wisdom or morality over all. He offers examples of this misstep in areas as divergent as economics, the environment, and national defense. Finally, he warns us to resist the influence of intellectuals and points out that the demand for public intellectuals is largely manufactured by the public intellectuals themselves. - Hoover Institution Thomas Sowell is an American economist, political writer, and commentator. He is currently a senior fellow of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. In 1990, he won the Francis Boyer Award, presented by the American Enterprise Institute. In 2002 he was awarded the National Humanities Medal for prolific scholarship melding history, economics, and political science. Peter M. Robinson is a research fellow at the Hoover Institution, where he writes about business and politics, edits Hoover's quarterly journal, the Hoover Digest, and hosts Hoover's television program, Uncommon Knowledge.

Bud has a more bearish view on nuclear power than Casey Energy Strategist Marin Katusa, so we'll have to interview him soon as well. It's okay that their opinions differ; creative thinking can't occur where different views are not allowed.

The first study to quantify the global cost of not getting enough exercise iputs the tab at $67.5 billion per year. They calculated the direct cost of healthcare at about $54 billion and indirect costs, including lost productivity due to early death, at another $13.7 billion. Researchers at Australia's University of Sydney, used 2013 data from 142 countries. They studied five major non-communicable diseases, which can be reduced with exercise: coronary heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, breast cancer and colon cancer. More than 40 percent of the health care cost, is attributed to the United States. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2016/07/29/The-cost-of-physical-inactivity-675-billion-per-year-globally/5091469793349/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Cancer Villages (2012): This report reveals shocking impact the toxic waste has on health of Chinese rural population. With the huge amounts of waste accumulated in the country, Chinese authorities struggle to find a place for toxic waste, leaving significant proportion of the population to die from cancer.

But as this horrifying report shows, much of their 'success' has involved simply moving their toxic industries out of sight. "It's risky, but we have no other choice: We only have this river," Wu Zhuliang tell us from his remote farm in South Western China. For Wu and his family their reliance on the river, which runs yellow with pollution, has had terrible consequences. They buried his son just over a month ago. He had been diagnosed with two types of cancer, Leukaemia and Thymoma, and had been in so much pain he said to his mother, "open the window and I'll jump out". The water from Wu's river was found to have levels of chromium, a known carcinogen, "200 times higher than the national standard". Ma Tianjie from Greenpeace tells us it's so toxic that, "simply touching the water, it could make your skin itchy. It's a very, very serious problem." All across rural China the same stories abound. The government is cleaning up the cities, but often the most toxic industries are simply moved to rural areas where regulations are lax. Chinese farmers are now four times more likely to die from liver cancer than the global average. "The government is trying to find a way to get rid of this huge pile of historically accumulated waste but they are struggling."

The 80 bn euro cost of physical inactivity in Europe is equivalent to what the entire world spends on cancer drugs each year! Within a few decades, physical inactivity has become one of the leading risks to European citizens' well-being and a growing challenge for European economies. But despite increasing evidence of dramatic health and economic costs associated with physical inactivity, we still lack sufficient initiatives to reverse this negative trend.

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.

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.
