Why Healthcare Is Becoming Problematically Expensive & What We Can Do About It

Healthcare is becoming an increasingly controversial topic in the US.

With rates that are only getting more expensive, the consequences of ObamaCare, and hefty premium rates- there is an urgent need for reform in the US healthcare sector.

The Important Psychological Difference Between Knowledge and Wisdom

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest. ― Confucius

At a first glance, knowledge and wisdom seem like seemingly identical notions and are often used interchangeably.
