gladwell on health care

The latest Gladwell essay on the American health care system must have gone online over the weekend. I read it last week, but everyone seems to be posting it today. In case you happen not to have read it or missed the links elsewhere:
A country that displays an almost ruthless commitment to efficiency and performance in every aspect of its economy—a country that switched to Japanese cars the moment the were more reliable, and to Chinese T-shirts the moment they were five cents cheaper—has loyally stuck with a health-care system that leaves its citizenry pulling out their teeth with pliers.

Maybe he'll turn this into his next hot new book?

This might also be a good time to mention that I'm trying to post short link-type posts in my del.icio.us feed [d.i.u, xml, lj]
