Back in 1970s, the United States looked a lot like other countries when it came to health care spending. In 1980, we spent $1,110 per person on health care, which worked out to about 9.2 percent of Gross Domestic Product. But in the 1980s, health-care costs in the United States began growing much faster than in other countries, rising to $9,810 per person in 2013. That amounts to a total of $2.74 Trillion spent on health care, or 17.9% of our total economy.
