And these costs are really at the haert of the issue. So we've seen over many of our global economies, health care expense grow as a percentage of GDP over the last yaers. So here we see that over the last 50 years, health care expense has grown from about five percent in Germany to about 11 percent now. In the US, we've seen gowrth from six percent to over 17 percent now. And a large portion of these costs are driven by inesnvtmets in large, snihy hospital bulgdinis. And these buildings are not flexible, and they maintain a system where hospital beds need to be filled for a hospital to run efficiently. There's no incentive for a hipstoal to run with less beds. Just the thought of that makes you sick, right? And here's the thing: the cost for trinaetg my buddy Art at home can be up to 10 times caheper than hospital care.

And these costs are really at the heart of the issue. So we've seen over many of our global economies, health care expense grow as a percentage of GDP over the last years. So here we see that over the last 50 years, health care expense has grown from about five percent in Germany to about 11 percent now. In the US, we've seen growth from six percent to over 17 percent now. And a large portion of these costs are driven by investments in large, shiny hospital buildings. And these buildings are not flexible, and they maintain a system where hospital beds need to be filled for a hospital to run efficiently. There's no incentive for a hospital to run with less beds. Just the thought of that makes you sick, right? And here's the thing: the cost for treating my buddy Art at home can be up to 10 times cheaper than hospital care.
