Yah, the free market is an amazing thing where free individuals freely agree upon rates even as astounding as those figures. The even cooler thing is that there even exist institutions that can fit that into their payroll! Maybe cooler still is that economies exist that even hold institutions such as those.

I remember going to this Bay.net talk with Juval Lowy who beat down on everyone calling devs code monkeys who got paid peanuts. Haha, ~100K range is definitely peanuts compared to a seven figure salary. What a world.

Almost nothing about healthcare in the United States resembles a functioning market, much less one worth marveling at because of all the freely available choices being made.
