We had the same life expectancy as Chinese men, which was two years shorter than Cuban men, 6 years shorter than Korean men, 5 years shorter than Norwegian or Swiss or Australian men, and 9 years shorter than men in Qatar and San Marino.

 

Relative to Chinese and Korean men, each one percent increase in health care expenditures as a percent of GDP, resulted in a TWO YEAR decrease in life expectancy for White American men.

Relative to Qatar, Kuwait, Hong Kong, and Italy, it resulted in a one year decrease in life expectancy.

Relative to Australia, the Central African Republic, and Ireland, it resulted in a decrease of life expectancy of half a year.

There are NO exceptions to the rule that every other male on the planet experienced a much greater increase in life expectancy than American White men, at a cost from at least ONE THIRD to as much as ONE TENTH as much.


In 52 years, between 1960 and 2012, the life expectancy of American men increased 8 years, from 68 to 76 (and 6 years for White men, from 68 to 74)
Relative to China:
42 to 74
From 26 years longer to exactly the same, a 26 year swing.
Relative to Korea:
50 to 78
From 18 years longer to 4 years shorter, a 22 year swing.
Relative to Qatar
59 to 78
From 9 years longer to 4 years shorter, a 13 year swing.
Relative to the Central African Republic
35 to 48
From 33 years longer to 26 years longer, a 7 year swing.
Relative to Italy:
67 to 81
From 1 year longer to 7 years shorter, an 8 year swing.
Relative to Ireland:
68 to 79
From equal to 5 years shorter, a 5 year swing.
Relative to Kuwait:
59 to 73
From 9 year longer to 1 year shorter, a 10 year swing.
Relative to Australia:
