no.

its just evidence that america leads the world in the number of publications. ask anyone in academia, anyone honest at least, they will tell you there are a lot of useless published articles, they make the institution look good and they help get the next grant, but they arent actually scientific advances.

whereas the german engineering company that manufactures artificial hip joints doesnt have any publications to its name. someone will have to do 2 small trials to get it licenced, and the german company will "donate" to whatever university does those trials, but the innovation that went into developing it does not appear on your list.
Thanks from imaginethat and RNG

Probably because it is germane to the proposed plans of nationalizing healthcare.

It is evidence of the gulf between the US and other countries regarding medical innovations.

Money is the root of all evil, and a man needs roots.

Medicare for all and why it will not work


It works better than what you've got down there! In Canada, we spend half as much per capita on healthcare to cover ALL of our citizens, while the best you can come up with for twice the money is Obamacare...high deductibles and still leaving 20% of the population with no health insurance.

But, if you insist...enjoy all the leeches feeding off you as you try to cough up the money for higher premiums!

And why doesn't magic of the market work in the US system? Insurance extortionists should not have a right to shake down sick and dying people for all of their money and assets! And, they're so scared shitless of having to compete with a Medicare buyin option, they threatened Obama and enough Democrats in Congress who are on the take, to make them drop that "competition" back in 08, remember?

*and if by some miracle, you get a Medicare-For-All plan down there, they need to deal directly with the drug companies and end that overcharging bullshit the drug companies have been allowed to get away with!

Maybe we should use income tax, or sales tax, or property tax. How many fucking taxes do we need?
