Definitely not an insider, but currently doing a strategy project on how health players should think about this. So here’s my thoughts: 1) Atul is a brilliant academic with truly innovative solutions. 2) As an academic, he will likely spend all of his time experimenting. 3) Previously people had speculated that amazon would buy a health system or health plan to jump start the venture (leveraging Berkshire and JP’s expertise). He is not the person they would’ve chosen for such a move 4) A number of experts are skeptical of Amazon’s ability to truly enact change in the market because Amazon’s, Berkshire’s, and Chase’s (ABC) employees are not indicative of the US population. 80% of Us healthcare costs are from 20% of the population. And that population isn’t working for ABC, so whatever solution they concoct would not be effective for fixing true challenges in the US

Has the blush come off the rose for this shining city on a hill? Have any other foreign fish in the US been asking yourself why we made the conscious decision to seek out a life in this country?

Never have I had to worry this much about going to the grocery store. The reaction of society here towards these issues is also dismal. Is it worth it?
