Healthcare as an Economic Plus?

If our food is to be produced by migrant workers and huge farming machines, if most manufacturing is to be done in China and third world countries, and if information processing is to be done by Indian clerks and computers, what work will be available to ordinary Americans?

Maybe providing health care is one of the answers.

There have been a number of reports in the press stating that the health care industry continued to grow during the recent recession, although at a slower rate than before.

In other words, while millions of people were losing their jobs, health care workers were not. Instead, the health care industry was hiring.

The high and growing cost of health care may be a problem for our economy, but in the meantime it may contribute to economic stability. The recession may have been worse than it was if it hadn’t been for the steady source of employment provided by health care.
