Next Year's Issue

Is health care. I don't agree with the spin inside this report, but the facts are inarguable: The costs of providing health care and underwriting health insurance are increasing annually at a double-digit clip. Unless we start putting the health care consumer closer to the transaction, so that he or she understands its real cost, this double-double will continue until no business can afford to provide health insurance coverage as part of an employment package. Except WalMart.
