    Thats a pretty blanket statement. Are you absolutely sure?

    "Excess demand"...because of universal health care? It must then follow that the US citizen either is very healthy not to burden the health care system there or is it because 40% cant afford/dont have medical insurance.

    Hey, I know you have to be patriotic - I am just saying what I see. The renumeration system for doctors here really sucks and the high standards of getting into medical school makes it a double whammy for the limited number of doctors here. The non-universal healthcare system in the U.S. placed specifically in the hands of private heathcare providers which some Americans can not afford contributes to the low demand relative to the number of doctors. The universal healthcare proposed by Obama can't pass through in the U.S. because there is probably no way to increase the number of doctors to prospective clients without lowering the standards of a medical degree which is highly risky - no one wants half-baked graduates in a life-saving job just saying.

    I'd take this report with a huge grain of salt. Raps have the best reason inthe world to use preventative medicine: guaranteed contracts. I can't believe they'd push him to play after the million medicals they put every guy through. I mean how many of you get xrays and MRIs for ankle sprains?

    Euro League reports love to paint NBA like the bad guys, meanwhile they welch on owed money left and right, drop injured players at the drop of a hat and still manage to put out a third rate product.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that when a Raptor gets injured that we don't use generic physio therapists/dr.'s etc. This has nothing to do with Canada's health care system and this whole story looks to be complete BS.
    Eh follow my TWITTER!

    My question now is why would Greece put out a report like that.
    Maybe it's from the same guys who run the banking system. ;-)

    There is excess demand because the price of health care in this country is below the actual market clearing price. No one knows what that is for any goods & services and there is a constant search for it, but when the price is zero, there can't be anything below that.

    +1. I know some Canadians have to be patriotic - but what I see, I will say (I am a reality sort of guy). Couple what you said above with the renumeration package for medical doctors(who can be paid similar money with less tax burdens or more money in the U.S. for metro-centers like New York or Los Angeles or the Caribbeans with good vacations, sunny weather and coasting work due to population and nice weather(trust me the weather contributes to lower sickness rates, you only have to deal with malaria lol which is way much better than the flu) - it does not look good) and even at the equilibrium price of medical services, there is still a shortage or excess demand due to an ever shrinking supply of doctors and increase in population which makes supply and demand in opposite directions leading to more and more excess demand that might burst the Canadian healthcare system at the seams(something for Obama with his Obamacare to note) .

    I will only say doctors get paid much more money, however, in places that are inaccessible like Yukon and Nunavut up North or cold and frigid Northern Ontario but at the expense of free vacations and family life coupled with a huge demand from the resident's populace as the only one or few resident physicians(place for a young doctor to cut his teeth in the profession though).

    "Nuff of the Economics lecture, back to sports which we are here for.
