Francisco Murteira Nabo on the future of healthcare

The criticism of the healthcare reform in the US should also give Europe pause for thought, writes Francisco Murteira Nabo, president of the Association of Portuguese Economists, in an article for business paper Diário Económico. The planned US reform, he says, "not only seems to have displeased the majority of liberal economists because it entails tax increases in the US, but it also contradicts the theory of several renowned European economists. The latter doubt on the one hand the sustainability of the European model, and on the other they believe Europe's expensive healthcare and social welfare systems could be one of the reasons for its economy's lack of competitiveness compared with the US economy. … We can learn a lesson from the decision in the US and the current European financing model. In future there will have to be an increasing convergence between the existing liberal US model … and the current European model."
