This is a show in Canada called Marketplace (I guess it is a little like Fair Go). They did this episode on/asking why are prices so much more in Canada vs the US? Even though the Canadian Dollar has been at parity or even higher vs the US Dollar...for some time now (a few yrs). I've often said we pay more living in other countries (ie Canada, NZ and others) so Americans can pay cheaper prices for things.

I found the part on hearing aids really interesting. $60 in parts (for the "fairly high end" hearing aid) sells between $1500 to $2000 (Cnd I reckon).


Just thinking or thought some might find it an interesting watch.
