Does More Social Spending Reduce Healthcare Costs?

We spend a lot of money on social programs. Studies indicate that a lot of those programs work to improve health outcomes. So, does that social spending reduce healthcare costs? Not really, at least not on a national level. But cutting social spending doesn’t help with health. As usual, it’s complicated, but there’s a lot of evidence these programs are doing good. Spending is worth it sometimes.
