Tired of the Rants about Healthcare Insurance?

Healthcare BusinessTired of the Rants about Healthcare Insurance?

Healthcare is one of the biggest businesses in the United States.  In Canada, the economic environment is fairing much better than that in the US and Canadian healthcare is free.  As the United States is slowly down-rated as the world leader in production, finance and possible military strength, they are having to reconsider their old conceptions of social programs such as healthcare.  The US will need a complete redesign of how their version of capitalism works as they rebuild and payback debt to communist countries such as China.

China now has the obvious advantage and has beaten out the US.  More US companies are trying to find safe harbor in the Chinese economy as they abandon the US markets.  Health insurance is one of those businesses as healthcare companies try to enter the Asian market, they are find political difficulties in which their programs do not coincide with communist ideals and financial structures.  However, some US companies located in China are required to carry their own healthcare and some have been required to have their own physician on staff.

News coming out of the US is now being accessed more through tv online as opposed to regular television sets.  This new trend for the US is one that has been happening in India and Mexico over the past two years.  With fewer cable companies and dish companies in other countries, tv onlinehas become the standard for watching news, sports and entertainment tv programs.  This trend may force some of the major television access providers to lower rates while also expanding into markets other than the US.

TV Online in the US

Many are calling for regulation of TV online.  The US government is not showing any interest currently in trying to regulate an area that clearly falls under free speech as long as it does not infringe upon copyrights as many US companies have been accused of in the past.  Companies including Youtube and Justintv have had issues with copyrighted tv programs showing up on their services.

With the recent European Union summit and a partial economic solution for Greece, many European investors are troubled by the outcome and near future of their economy.  Several leaders of the European Union have decided to take matters into their own hands and develop new economic plans for their own countries while also developing all nation plans.  Leaders throughout Europe are dissatisfied with how Greece is handling their internal affairs related to their economy and the union.

The UK is holding their own summit to discuss how to protect themselves from the economic fallout within the European Union as well as any coming from the current economic climate of the United States.  Many Europeans are also concerned that the US may be planning a war against Iran, which will severely hurt resources available to the UK.  Leaders within the UK are going to have to make tough decisions regarding any near future wars that may require their assistance.

Does Europe have a plan to get them selves out of the euro crises?  With a summit being held this month regarding the state of the euro; consumers strength is on the decline and there are very few answers being produced.  The summit has notably agreed that they will lower the debt held by Greece within the private sector by half.  However, the price of such a move may prove to be devastating if it does not produce positive results within the next five years.

Many fear that the Greek write-down of debt could cause chaos among European investors if bonds begin to slide because of the move.  This is only one of many planned summits and with more in the next few months, Europeans should be hopeful that at least one economist will come up with a viable plan for stopping an all out collapse within the union.
