      For this topic on healthcare, one of the topic question(s) I chose were "what if there were wasn't any healthcare at all, what effect will that have on the cost of healthcare". I found an article explaining the story of a man who became unemployed and with that lost all his benefits including health insurance. However, this man was on medication for blood treatment in order to help him with his medical condition.   The problem is that he recieves very little in income and it's difficult for him to afford a visit to the doctor because the price is expensive.

The official name for “ObamaCare” is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), or Affordable Care Act (ACA) for short. ObamaCare’s goal is to give more Americans access to affordable, quality health insurance and to reduce the growth in U.S. health care spending. ObamaCare does not replace Private Insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid. ObamaCare doesn’t regulate your health care; it regulates health insurance along with some of the worst practices of the For-profit Healthcare Industry.

               If you have Obama care you can keep your healthcare even if it doesnt submit to the ACA. You can only keep your healthcare until the year 2015 anytime after that you will have to change your healthcare unless it has the granfather effect. Granfathered plans are exempted from many changes required under the ACA. Therefore most plans will be effective until 2017 due to the extension. However without the grandfathered status, you will be required to change your plan and doctor.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/analysis-and-features/hamish-mcrae-how-will-war-affect-global-economy-643176.html War is a profitable business but in the long run it hurts the people. In this article is compares to how we invaded Iran and but this happen shares fall and oil prices rise on fears of war. So is this really helping or hurting the country.

While war does increase demand for certain products which may help the economy, it can also have major ramifications in economic terms as well as human life. War affects human living standards years after the conflict has concluded depending on the magnitude of the conflict. With war ensuing, it may curb the spending of the average consumer which has a direct effect on the economy for that nation. During the first Gulf War, the conflict had a major impact on the European union which led to the loss of jobs and a steep decline to nations like the United Kingdom.
