Facts do not lie. Facts all come with points of view, but this time the point of view came with the facts.
A wealth of studies were done and they all came to one conclusion: Health and social problems are directly related to how bad inequality is in a certain country, while general wealth has little to no correlation.
It isn't about how much money we spend. Nearly every aspect of a society usually somehow comes back to one factor: equality.
Inequality in the US today is worse than it was during the Roman Empire. Health and social problems are also among the worst.
Imprisonment, suicide, obesity, social mobility, homicide, education performance, you name it are not related to GDP. It is related to how evenly that wealth is distributed.
This is all explained and backed in a much more well-written format.
