U.S. Healthcare spending vs life expectancy

It appears from this chart in The Economist that we here in America are spending more on healthcare than any place else in the world, but not getting our money’s worth. Life expectancy in the other countries dwarfs that in the U.S.

Americans smoke less than people in other wealthy countries do, but we have higher rates of obesity and infant mortality.
