Livio: any idea on Canadian vs Spanish doctor's average incomes? Would this explain the higher costs?

Hi Nick:
Actually I did find some numbers in US PPP dollars for 2011 and they suggest that Spanish physicians are paid about half as much as Canadian ones when it comes to total remuneration.

I wonder if high physician compensation in the US puts upward pressure on physician compensation in Canada.

We could use more MRIs. The future is innovation though. Private MRI clinics are correct as long as more radiation technologists and doctors are publicly educated. We have urban commutes and fast food; I'd expect Spain to live longer. This needs to be quantified for MRI wait times. Our doctors are powerful; they form policy as a consequence of reduced salary vis a vis the USA. Spain had a cold war dictator in the early 1980's, so salary before 1984 is a meaningless indicator. Our brain imaging advances can be used to boot the PM and form a basis for future anti-WMD global governance.
If you take the RF coil of an MRI, and wear a CNT textile, you can measure the FID of an abstract thought utilizing working memory. You can hire positions of power and leaders who will avoid WMDs using it. Canada has 0.5 of these devices and everyone else: 0. I couldn't get my hometown to invest in cutting edge textiles but because of Greenway I read enough different books to learn the theory...in general public medicine should segway to utilitarian thinking and C-of-C.

Continual improvements will herald clerical brain imaging. A 1970's researcher noted the need to think in terms of webs of working memory. And almost everyone worried about risks is in time trouble; intuition would be more useful than working memory. The USA missed most of the sci-fi risks because they need to triangulate low taxes votes, and the Republican system is reactive to risks (as you keep power if you misplay a hand). The individual as important is something you want to map. After new actors have brain imaging, new technologies can be more safely invented and hopefully spies and terrorists can be mapped. CNTs and cognitive science meet in the future of office health care. For example, put rail guns or lasers on the Zunum and it forms a 5-Eyes ground robot killer assuming the staff is sane and effective.
