I started buying into the health sector in the late ’80s.
I’ve been a patient, a consumer and a investor.
For the most part, I’ve gotten the value of health care for what it’s worth.
Now I have a lot more to say about that.
I bought into the drug-development industry a few years ago, when there was a huge opportunity.
The big question for me was whether this was the right time to invest in it.
It was a bubble, so it was a time when you could bet against it.
But I wasn’t convinced.
I had some financial expertise and some medical knowledge.
I didn’t know the whole story.
Then in 2008, the Dow Jones Industrial Average hit an all-time high and stocks started to rise.
The pharmaceutical industry had a big push back, with some companies shutting down.
And then things got really interesting.
A lot of new drugs came out.
The prices of some of the old drugs fell dramatically.
It made sense to me.
It was a really good time for me to get involved.
The healthcare sector is one of the fastest growing sectors in the country, and I saw tremendous growth in it, especially as the recession hit.
We were able to get a lot of our new drugs to market.
And in some cases, they actually improved my health.
For example, I was able to be diagnosed with a cold and was able a few months later to get back to work.
My doctor said, I’m going to prescribe you an antiviral.
It saved my life.
I was able, when I was in my mid-40s, to be able to take my first antiviral, Avastin, for free.
I got the full benefit of it and the first flu shot.
It’s still a great shot.
The last flu shot I had had to be deferred because of a bad reaction to the shot.
But now I can go to the doctor and get that shot, and it’s going to be worth it.
I can look at my life now, and think, “I’m doing a lot better than I did then.”
It’s definitely more stable.
And I’m also healthier.
I went to a hospital in Florida last year for a hip replacement.
I felt a little bit out of sorts, but I thought, It’ll take three to four months.
I’m not worried about the outcome.
It didn’t affect my performance.
But after I left, the surgeon had to do a hip implant, so he had to re-inflate my hip.
That took a few weeks.
Then he had the nerve graft.
I thought it was going to take two to three weeks.
I could have just gone home and not been there.
But the pain was bad, and they had to have another operation.
So I ended up spending two months in the hospital.
I was fine.
I did my usual routine, just doing a physical and having a few tests.
It wasn’t the worst experience.
But it wasn’t a very pleasant experience.
I remember thinking, “Oh my God, I did this for three months and now I’m here.”
I’m not an activist.
But you could see that people are starting to feel the effects of this recession.
The unemployment rate is now at a new all- time high of 10.7 percent, which is not healthy for the economy.
And the cost of living is also increasing, so people are trying to find ways to reduce their spending.
I don’t want to see that happen to people who are trying for a better life.
So if I had a lot less money to spend on food, I wouldn’t have a problem buying a smaller, more healthy meal.
And that would be fine.
But with a lot fewer people who have health insurance, that’s not going to happen.
I also understand the pain people are going through.
They have to be careful about spending money on things that could go wrong.
But when you look at the evidence, I do think that if people had more options, that it would be much more beneficial for them.
I also understand why people might feel like there’s a higher price to pay.
I understand that people have to pay for it, too.
But why are they going to pay more for it if it’s not necessarily more beneficial?
That’s the real question: If there’s something that we can do to reduce our spending on health care, and make sure we have access to better care, why aren’t we doing it?
If we’re going to have this big recession, we need to find some way to bring down our costs.
That means reducing our cost of care, lowering our costs of prescription drugs, lowering the cost and increasing access to preventive care.
So, what’s your advice to people in the healthcare sector?
Do you think that the price of health insurance is a factor?
Or are we just seeing a general decline in the cost per capita of health coverage?
I think we need a real
