Call it fear of mortality, opportunism or altruism — Grove sees a major breakdown in a system that leaves nearly 50 million Americans uninsured and emergency rooms closing down in droves. There’s also a business case. Health care is a $200 trillion-a-year industry — as Grove notes, 20 times larger than the chip business — that’s only getting bigger as baby boomers enter their autumnal years.
Exactly right, the system is broken. The huge costs drag down the entire economy and it needs to be fixed.
