  1. I love this video! Especially the tidbit about doctors in China only getting paid if your healthy. Wow, that’s incentive for them to treat you! We do a lot of weird things in New Hampshire that others don’t. For example, motorcycle helmets are not required. No permit is needed for kids to drive a car at the age of 15 and a half. They just need a birth certificate and an adult in the car. Live free or die is our motto. I never said any of it was smart, just bizarre. Great video and thought provoking!

    1. Alaska tends to be a little less restrictive with many things, too, but they do require permits here. It’s so interesting how different states handle things.

      I like the idea of paying Doctors when we’re healthy, too. Such a different perspective!

  2. I’ve been a medical professional for 40 years and I’m with Suerae on this one — doctors getting paid only when you’re healthy sounds like a darn good idea to me!

    People think it’s “weird” I add cinnamon to my coffee. :)

    Here in Southern California, we have a “different” way of explaining distance or “how far away” a particular destination is. We never share the “number of miles away” something is — we share the “number of minutes of hours” it takes to get there. For example, if someone were to ask me, “How far away is the Rose Bowl from Arcadia (where I live)?” I would say, “It’s about 10 minutes from here”.

    Great video — thanks for sharing!

    1. My husband used to laugh at me when we first got married because I’d ask how far something was and I wanted minutes, not miles. I always thought in terms of minutes. I wonder if it’s partly an east coast/west coast thing?

      1. Partly an east coast/west coast thing? I’d have to say, “Yep”! :))

  3. That’s a great vid, thanks for sharing. In the last few months Ted TV overdone themslefs, with some realy mind opening lectures.

    1. TedTV has amazing content. Have to be careful not to get lost over there with all the fantastic presentations.

  4. Oooh, I love this vid! Very eye opening in perspectives. Thanks for sharing this with us Michelle!

    FYI – I wish American doctors and medical institutions adopted the “get rich to keep us healthy” model!!

    *wishful thinking* :-)

    1. Me, too! I’d be a lot happier about paying my medical bills if that were the model. :)

  5. I love TED videos – so insightful. As with the others here, and as shown by the audience applause, the doctors getting paid when your NOT sick is an awesome concept…
