    Quoted from the above link.
    "Apart from the United States, most developed countries now spend around
    $3000 (£1500; 2000) per head on health, which is 8-9% of GDP. If spending
    was capped to current percentages of GDP this amount would rise to $3300
    over the next five years, assuming growth of 2% a year, while faster growth
    could raise it to $3600. The cap is a signal about priorities—that it is far
    more important to use the $3300 more effectively through system redesign and
    better financial management than to raise it to $3600. "

    This is also interesting
