Healthcare Spending and Life Expectancy

A somewhat misleading (in my opinion) presentation of these numbers has been floating around on the web recently, and so I wanted to post this cleaner graph. (The area of the circle for each country is proportional to the number of doctor visits per person; I don’t know that this information is so crucial but I included it, as it was on the original graph that I’ve modified.)

See here for background.
