Ones & Tooze: electric vehicle charging and the economics of death.
.... I'm actually not kidding.
New Ones and Tooze just dropped.
Cameron and I talk about electric vehicles, chargers, the US and China …. and then Cameron takes us down a really wild and dark path about the economics of death, end of life care, COVID, the pandemic and trauma.
Going to come back to this with a post tomorrow filling out the details on the economics of dying. But this is a taster.
You can get it from the Foreign Policy website
Or from Apple here:
Or from Spotify.
Gotta say, I still get a kick out of being on Spotify.
This is definitely an episode you can share with friends.
If you like the show, please write reviews at all the obvious places. And back us in our friendly in-house rivalry with FP’s other excellent shows. Listen to them all!
Have a good Friday.
Re health care, you didn't mention that of the 2.8 million Americans who died in 2018, 655 thousand were from heart disease and 599 thousand were from cancer alone. Similarly, you didn't mention that in 2020, 3.3 million Americans died, of which 690 thousand were from heart disease, 598 thousand were from cancer, and 345 thousand were from COVID-19. That puts an entirely different perspective on the impact of COVID-19, don't you think?
