Warren Buffett talks fixing health care, Jamie Dimon and Jeff Bezos

Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett discusses his new health care venture named “Haven” and why he thinks it will be a success.

Industry titans Amazon (AMZN), JPMorgan Chase (JPM), and Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A, BRK.B) teamed up a year ago to address rising health care costs in the U.S. for their employees.

Their new venture is a nonprofit called Haven, and led by Dr. Atul Gawande, a surgeon, professor, author, and public health leader. The goal of Haven isn’t just about making or saving money, but instead solving some of the most critical issues surrounding health care, Berkshire Hathaway’s Warren Buffett told Yahoo Finance’s Andy Serwer in a wide-ranging interview.

“The plan is to support a very, very, very good thinker on this subject, who’s a practicing physician, and who commands the respect of the medical community too,” Buffett said. “In effect, figure out some way so that we can deliver even better care, and have people feel better about their care, too. They have to perceive that they’re receiving better care, over time. And stop the march upward of costs, relative to the country’s output.”

The 88-year-old investor went on to explain that the U.S. is spending far too much on health care.

“We’ve got this incredible economic machine, but we shouldn’t be spending 18%, when other countries are doing something pretty comparable, in terms of doctors per capita, hospital beds per capita, and all that,” he said. “The very top stuff in medicine, I think, is very much concentrated in this country. And that’s great. I want us to be the leader, but I think we’re paying a price. If we’re paying seven extra points of GDP, that’s $1.4 trillion a year.”

One of the more high-profile challenges in health care is soaring drug prices.

Buffett acknowledged that D.C. is trying to figure it out and said this is something Haven will take on, too.

“[You] talk to the average congressman, they regard it as a problem, and they see specific instances of drug prices or something like that, but it’s a big problem to change,” Buffett said. “The trouble is it intersects in so many ways. And that’s why we’ve got Gawande heading it. We’ve got three pretty good sized organizations backing him.”
Collectively, Berkshire Hathaway, Amazon, and JPMorgan employ more than 1.2 million people — giving Gawande an opportunity to problem solve for better efficiency and outcomes.

“His game plan, it’s not something we’re going to try to lay out, because it’s in his head, to some degree. Obviously, we selected him by hearing and reading, and so on, what he’s done. But he’ll learn, as we go. We will conduct certain experiments, or he will, and try out a community where one of us has a lot of employees. There are various ways to experiment.”

Bull Sector Flashback to 1982

[ad_1]

On August 19, 1986, I landed at the JFK airport, and my father&#39s aged faculty classmate, James, picked me up. Soon after a number of days of being with him and his spouse and children, he dropped me off at faculty in Montclair, New Jersey.

Coming to the United States was a new commencing for me. Likely to faculty was like diving into a total new earth, in which I had to figure out some thing new each individual and each and every working day. It pressured me to operate out how matters labored little bit by little bit.

And so lots of matters that are so evident now … ended up so really hard to figure out on my personal back then. For example, I did not know how to dress for cold climate, and, as a result, I was cold pretty much all the time in the wintertime.

What&#39s going on in the stock market reminds me of that time, since now most people are absolutely baffled. Without having you have expertise and information of how markets operate, you&#39re going to make all the erroneous conclusions.

And you could stop up lacking out on some thing that could absolutely alter your existence in 2017 …

This crucial issue is a bull market in stocks.

And I&#39m not just conversing about a important new bull market in stocks that is going to propel the Dow Jones Industrial Typical to 50,000 … and then beyond.

I feel that when this bull market finishes, the Dow could very easily be one hundred,000.

I know that lots of of you assume that this appears to be crazy. On the other hand, assume back to 1982, which was the commencing of the very last important bull market in stocks. People today ended up pessimistic about the upcoming of our region.

One straightforward…
