The Healthcare Economist notes that you are more likely to die in a New York hospital than one in London or Paris. But London is less safe for “avoidable” mortality. (I believe the English translation of that is “Dying when you shouldn’t have had to do so.)
Unfortunately, there is no solution to the problems of London and New York relative to Paris. I believe Dani Rodrik, in another context, explained why this may be so, even if his commenters appear to miss the point.
