New World Notes - Class, Health, & Health Care (Part 1 of 2)
This week on New World Notes: radio program #246, November 20, from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m., host Kenneth Dowst replays Part 1 of an interview with health care reformer Dr. Susan Rosenthal, author of Sick and Sicker.
This week Dr. Rosenthal discusses the root cause of much disease--social inequality--and (as she sees it) the root cause of that: capitalism. She also discusess the practice of psychiatry, why depression is so common (and so poorly treated), and why, each year, for-profit medicine kills 23 times as many Americans as criminal use of firearms.
This is an "encore presentation," originally broadcast in July 2010.
Susan's book, Sick and Sicker: Essays on Class, Health and Health Care, is available in paperback (from her) or as a "Kindle" electronic book from Amazon.com. For more information on the book--and more by Susan--see her website, www.susanrosenthal.com.

New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "aegis") of WWUH-FM, a community service of the University of Hartford.
