Host Ethan Bearman analyzed Amazon, JP Morgan and Berkshire Hathaway’s recent announcement that they will be pooling their efforts to improve the quality of healthcare and lower its cost for hundreds of thousands of their employees “free of profit incentives.”

Bearman doesn’t have any doubt that the trifecta, already the models of efficiency, can, in time, revolutionize the country’s faltering healthcare system; however, he isn’t 100 percent sold on the idea that the move isn’t being driven by a bottom line.

Listen to the segment below to hear Bearman explain why.
