Intelligence Squared U.S.
Is "Big Pharma" to blame for rising health care costs?

Health care costs in the U.S. are nearly double what other rich countries spend. We read of drug therapies that cost $100,000 a year or more, and of large drug price increases. Is this a major driver of excessive health care costs? Or is it a by-product of the huge costs of getting new drugs approved? Has big pharma delivered drugs that reduce the need for costly surgeries, which extend life and improve its quality? Or do they deserve the blame that has been leveled against them? The Debaters are Ezekiel Emanuel, Lori Reilly, Neera Tanden, and Paul Howard.

He learned radio broadcasting on KSFC, before it was part of Spokane Public Radio but still was part of the broadcasting program at Spokane Falls Community College. Brian also studied radio at Clatsop Community College in Astoria, Oregon, where he featured new age and fusion jazz on his own show. He admits that at heart he is a news junkie, which fits in well with his work Saturday mornings as regional host for NPR's Morning Edition.
