If you're not measuring...

...you're not managing...

Researchers looked at data, including censuses, death registrations and surveys, to compile the estimated number of early deaths in 187 countries in 1970, 1990 and 2010.
Hey Britain... how's that nanny-state thing working out for you?

Britain's health care is a mess. They tried to totally socialize it with public delivery of healthcare, unlike the rest of Europe and Canada, which found different levels of balance between state regulated/directed/managed and private delivery.

The same study shows that Canada, Sweden, Norway, Finland, France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Iceland and Germany all fare better than the US, meaning the UK is the oddball.

So really, shouldn't you be asking:

"Hey America... how's that profit-driven health care thing working out for you?"
