Professor Christian Hagist, Chair of Economic and Social Policy, is certain: if everything remains as it is, our health care system will crash in the next 20 years, provided prevention is not thoughtfully realized. In the think tank "fischimwasser" podcast, he explains that companies have to understand prevention as a market factor. Because: the life expectancy of the population will continue to rise. As a result, any investment in one's health will pay for itself much longer.
