Interview with Bethany McLean about her book The Big Fail: What the Pandemic Revealed About Who America Protects and Who It Leaves Behind, co-authored with Joe Nocera. Discusses the paradox of America’s healthcare system – immense spending that does not equate to superior care, a disparity made glaringly obvious during the global COVID crisis. Dissects the financial interventions of recent administrations and biases that tip the scales in favor of the affluent, leaving small enterprises and the vulnerable in the lurch. Examines the swift mobilization that birthed vaccines under Operation Warp Speed, an emblem of successful government-industry collaboration amidst a turbulent political backdrop.
