Why everyone benefits from falling global inequality

Why everyone benefits from falling global inequality | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

What are the consequences of falling global income inequality? Firstly, falling inequality and poverty is improving the living conditions in developing countries. (The empirical evidence on how health, education, human rights, violence, the environment and other aspects are changing globally is presented on my freely available online publication OurWorldInData.)

Secondly, there are benefits of falling global inequality for the entire world with benefits for people in rich countries. To see how decreasing global inequality is helping us all it is useful to think about a problem that we would want to solve. The principle applies for all pressing problems we are facing – from energy generation to public policies – but for the argument let’s take a potentially deadly disease as an example: If you had to choose, would you rather have a disease that many other people are suffering from or would you rather have a disease that only few others have? The answer is obvious: Since there is more demand for solving the common disease there will be better research and better treatment for this disease and your chances of finding a cure for the common disease are better. The chances to find a solution for a problem rise with the number of people that demand a solution for this problem. This logic also applies to the world as a whole: In the highly unequal world of the past the demand for innovations to solve our problems could only come from the small circle of better-off countries. The vast majority of our poor ancestors were effectively excluded from raising the demand for their problems. Today in a richer, more equal world there is increasingly more demand for innovation from an increasing number of richer people from around the world. A world in which more people are seeking solutions for the problems we are facing will innovate and progress much faster – a development from which everyone benefits.

Guy Birenbaum, le naufragé de Twitter | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

Accro aux réseaux sociaux et à l'info en continu, le journaliste a fini par tomber en dépression. Il raconte dans un livre son retour à la vraie vie. 

Il a le teint pâle des convalescents, Guy Birenbaum, en ce jour de mars. Levé à 4 h 45 pour assurer sa chronique de 7 h 55 sur France Info. Et puis ? « Et puis rien. Je déjeune avec mes filles, je promène mon chien… Je suis peinard. » Exit l’hyperconnecté qui bloguait, textotait, facebookait, tweetait, instagramait de 4 heures du matin jusqu’au milieu de la nuit ? « C’est fini, juré ! »

Guy Birenbaum, 53 ans, intellectuel, éditeur, journaliste, polémiste et décrypteur de l’information sur le Web, retournerait presque les poches de son jean pour vous prouver qu’elles ne planquent ni smartphone ni oreillette. Il y a du désarroi dans son regard. Celui du type qui, un trop long moment, s’est perdu de vue.

« Je me suis laissé dériver et j’ai atteint ce point – invraisemblable pour quelqu’un qui a travaillé pendant des années sur une thèse de doctorat de 800 pages – où je tweete : “Charlotte a chanté comme une patate à ‘La Nouvelle Star’” et là, tout le monde me trouve formidable ! » Tout le monde, à savoir les 145 000 followers (option basse) qui le suivent sur la Toile.

Le livre qu’il publie aux Editions des Arènes, Vous m’avez manqué (sortie le 1er avril), raconte comment M. J’ai-un-avis-sur-tout, maître de l’univers blogs et tweets, de l’info en continu, comment ce type qui se croyait plus malin que tous les autres s’est laissé aspirer par le monde virtuel avant de sombrer, en 2014, dans une dépression de type 2.0, jusqu’à reprendre – humblement, dit-il – pied dans la vraie vie. « J’ajoutais du bruit au...

What doctors must learn from the anti-vaccination movement

What doctors must learn from the anti-vaccination movement | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

Let this measles outbreak be more than a tragedy that deepens misunderstandings between doctors and patients....   

Perhaps part of the problem is that medicine as a profession is caught in the middle of a cultural shift. We are on the one hand in the midst of a market-driven, insurance-controlled era when patients are expected to be information-processing health care consumers and doctors revenue-generating workers evaluated by their efficiency rather than their bedside manner. On the other hand, physicians are often still expected to be god-like and medicine so perfect that even the death of a very ill, elderly patient is seen as a doctor’s fault.

The answer, then, must be finding a cultural middle-ground, where patients can both question and find relationships of trust; where physicians can admit professional or even personal fallibility — their humanity — while having the time and support to attend deeply, thoughtfully and knowledgeably to the ill.

Let’s stop Mickey-Mousing around, bartering insults and accusations. Let this measles outbreak be more than a tragedy that deepens misunderstandings between doctors and patients. Instead, let it be an awakening — a call to preserve that precious health care relationship between two human beings, each deeply listening, each deeply committed, on both sides of the stethoscope.

Or the vaccination syringe, as the case may be.

Because, as Hillary Clinton recently tweeted: “The science is clear: The earth is round, the sky is blue, and … Let’s protect all our kids.”

These Will Be the World's 20 Largest Economies in 2030

These Will Be the World's 20 Largest Economies in 2030 | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it
Get ready for a new economic order. In the world 15 years from now, the U.S. will be far less dominant, several emerging markets will catapult into prominence, and some of the largest European economies will be slipping behind. That's according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's latest macroeconomic projections that go out to 2030, displayed in the chart below. The U.S. will just barely remain the global leader, with $24.8 trillion in annual output. The gray bar represents the $16.8 trillion gross domestic product projected for 2015, and the green bar shows how much bigger the economy is expected to be 15 years from now. The country, worth 25 percent of the world economy in 2006 and 23 percent in 2015, will see its share decline to 20 percent. China's GDP will grow to more than twice its size today, helping the Asian powerhouse to almost entirely close its gap with the U.S.

What is content curation?

In simple terms, the process of content curation is the act of sorting through large amounts of content on the web and presenting the best posts in a meaningful and organized way.


The process can include sifting, sorting, arranging, and placing found content into specific themes, and then publishing that information.

T cell exclusion, immune privilege, and the tumor microenvironment

Effective immunotherapy promotes the killing of cancer cells by cytotoxic T cells. This requires not only that cancer-specific T cells be generated, but also that these T cells physically contact cancer cells. The coexistence in some patients of cancer cells and T cells that recognize them indicates that tumors may exhibit the phenomenon of immune privilege, in which immunogenic tissue is protected from immune attack. Here, we review the evidence that stromal cells of the tumor microenvironment mediate this restriction by excluding T cells from the vicinity of cancer cells. Overcoming this T cell checkpoint may thus enable optimal immunotherapy.
