Loans and Lines of Credit: Timing is Everything
Friday, January 30, 2015 09:25 PM

Imagine a small-business owner walks into his or her shop one day and sees water gushing from the company bathroom, turning the entire place into a giant swamp. In this emergency scenario, the business owner doesn’t have much time to think, and doesn’t have enough cash on hand to fix the plumbing that day and open up for business.  If the business owner had a line of credit in place for emergencies such as this, he could easily write a check to the plumber and clean-up crew and pay a low interest-rate on the line of credit to cover the fix.

Instead, with no contingency plan, the business owner would likely need to take on a short-term business loan with high interest rates to fix the plumbing and get back up and running.  Small-business owners who are in desperate need of a loan to cover an emergency situation are not in as favorable position as those who plan ahead. If these business owners would have taken initiative much earlier, when the need wasn't as desperate, they may have had better loan options with lower interest-rates.

Although the United States spends more on health care than any other nation, a growing body of research shows that Americans are in poorer health and live shorter lives than people in many other high-income countries.  The U.S. does not have the best health care system in the world - it has the best emergency care system in the world. But advanced U.S. medical technology has not translated into better health statistics for its citizens.

Nor is America's international reputation in health care as high as many Americans boast it to be. The often asked rhetorical question is "which country is the envy of the world when it comes to health care?”  But according to a Gallup poll published by the Toronto Star, only 2 percent of all Canadians believe that the U.S. has a better health care system than their own.

A review of the health care statistics from World Health Organization (2011) compares 17 countries – the United States and 16 “peer” countries.  Here are the rankings:
