Things You Should Read This Wednesday at Lunchtime

Only two things that struck me as should-reads this morning:

Michael Stillman, M.D., and Monalisa Tailor, M.D, of the University of Louisville Medical Center, on the blockages to health-care access that are killing one of their patients with colon cancer--and thus on how inadequate our health-care safety net truly is right now.

Carmen Reinhart making the case that we should be really worried about debt accumulation--and, in my view at least, demonstrating that that case is quite weak as long as interest rates remain low.
