In almost every year since the 1960s, health care spending has grown at least as fast as the overall economy, and often much faster. Health economists have long debated why.

This episode was adapted from a column friend-of-the-show Austin Frakt wrote for the Upshot. Links to resources and further reading can be found there: http://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/09/ups...
