    2- Norway :
    Norway spends 9.3% of its GDP on healthcare system with average of 5.669 US $ per person while average life expectancy in Norway is 80.45 years.

    3- Switzerland :

    Lets compare these data with 3 countries which are not members in OECD to see the difference between developed and developing countries in healthcare system expenditure :

    Example 1 "Egypt"
    : spends 4.7 % of its GDP on healthcare system with average of 293 int $ per person while average life expectancy in Egypt is 73.2 years.

    Example 3 "Philippines"
    : spends 4.1 % of its GDP on healthcare system with average of 164 int $ per person while average life expectancy in Philippines is 66.6 years.

    Clearly the American system is broken. Obamacare is not likely to fix much. We should strive for a Canadian or European model, probably more like Germany. But, we won't. We have a 19th century education system, and we have a 19th century health care system. Yes, bandages have been applied but they have turn out to be more problem than promise.
