Doctor's Bills in China

A tidbit from an old book that would make for a great healthcare system for any country! No honey, no money...

Odd FactoidsWe Occidentals only pay our doctors when we are sick, and sometimes not even then. The Celestial method, as shown by the example of the Emperor of China, is to pay the doctor only when one is well.

As soon as the Emperor is sick it is notification to his physicians that their salary is cut off till he is perfectly well again. The passionate zeal with which the regulars go to work to get his majesty back where their salaries will begin again is said to be something astounding. The result is tha the Emperor is about the healthiest man standing on this planet, and his physicians seldom lose a day's salary.
