How much will our productivity increase when we have Universal Health Care?

Oshawa, Ontario is the new Detroit. While Canadian and American workers are equally productive, auto manufacturers don'-t have to buy healthcare policies for their employees. Taxes are slightly higher here, but the net savings works out to about $6, 000 per employee.Preventative medicine is a huge increase in health and as a means of cutting health care costs. It can prevent people for developing serious issues that may take them out of the labour force pre-maturely.Finally, it helps the finance industry. American'-s save about -1% of their income, which is appalling. A healthy savings is about 4-8% of one'-s income. Not having to pay for health insurance will save a fair chunk of change which can then be used to pay off debts or put into savings.Source(s):Statistics CanadaLogicFareed Zakaria GPS"-The New Golden Age"- -Ravi Batra
