House says resolving socioeconomic inequalities, not spending more on health care, will improve health in America

a PSC In The News reference, 2015

"Healthcare heals the sick. Better pay keeps them healthy in the first place" - The Guardian. 07/06/2015.

Despite long and expensive efforts to improve healthcare access and affordability, Americans have worse health than other wealthy nations. And U.S. health spending has grown to almost 20% of GDP - far more than any other nation spends. James House says that to improve population health, America must go beyond expanding access to insurance and health care: "The greatest opportunity for making Americans healthier lies in improving access to education, income and better occupational and residential conditions."
