Good and Bad Trends in Healthcare with Dr. Dhruv Khullar

Lost Debate

14-03-2024 • 36 mins

Ravi welcomes back Dr. Dhruv Khullar, a physician and assistant professor at Cornell and contributing writer at The New Yorker, to tackle recent trends in healthcare and longevity.  They start by discussing how hospital and private equity acquisitions of physician practices have influenced healthcare costs and the quality of care, including the results of a new study by The Economist that explores how and why healthcare costs in America have remained generally consistent since 2010. Finally, Ravi and Dhruv examine Dhruv’s recent piece in The New Yorker that looks at President Joe Biden’s age, what his age tells us about his fitness for office, and how public perception on this topic could influence the 2024 election.
