> that's a bit less than healthcare as a fraction of the nation's GDP

Let's assume you're talking about just the USA> What do you mean by "a bit"? How did you just calculate healthcare, given the massive social programs in play? $1000 is not ANYTHING near health care costs (not to mention the post-life care). The ambulance ride alone, when someone is in distress (or deceased) is $1000 today.

UBI is idiotic, but healthcare costs are horrific.
