Capitalism and Health

A Talk by Dr. Susan Rosenthal

The purpose of health care should be to provide for the well-being of every person – not for companies to make profit. Health care workers face this conflict on the job every day. Every day, they are immersed in human suffering yet denied the means to alleviate that suffering. The rest of us struggle to pay the rising costs of health care for ourselves and our families. Meanwhile the health care companies grow richer and richer every year as our access to decent care grows further out of reach.

Susan Rosenthal, physician, author, and socialist activist will discuss the terrible cost of sacrificing human health to profit and argue that we can do more than manage the damage that capitalism creates. Rosenthal writes articles on social health and is the author of two books: SICK and SICKER: Essays on Class,Health, and Health Care, and POWER and Powerlessness.
