Episode notes

In this episode, we will dig deeper into how the controversial and unsubstantiated idea that for-profit private healthcare is key to ending health poverty in lower income countries, and how private equity funds became the vehicle of choice for so many government-backed healthcare investments. 

This episode features Simon Clark, journalist and co-author of The Key Man: The true story of how the global elite was duped by a capitalist fairy tale.
