1-    How does the U.S. health care system compare to other countries such as Australia, Canada, China, Germany, Great Britain, Israel, Japan or Singapore?

How does government and economics shape a health care system?

Unlike other countries such Canada, Great Britain, or Germany, the health care system in the United States is a pluralisitic type and mostly own privately, and financed by a multiplayer system. Unlike most international health care system, the United States has a system that is unique. Most Americans do not have access to health insurance; in order to help make ends meet, an intermediary system was created which are third-party insurers that play an intermediate role between the financing and delivery aspects of health care. Just like those other countries, the United States have a private sector as well. Universal health care is a theory yet to become practical. Even in countries that do have universal health care, it remains inaccessible to everyone due to lack of resources.
