More on the tumble in the Chinese stock markets today. Plus, Members of the U.S. House call DHS’s focus on climate change as a national security risk “misplaced” and want an explanation of that strategy at a hearing Wednesday. The session speaks to the many ways climate change has been framed — economic, political, religious, etc. We look at how and why that has come to be. New data show primary care doctors are seeing slightly bigger raises from commercial insurers than higher-paid specialists. We put that in context, as insurers look to control spending by keeping more of the care focused in primary care, rather than with expensive specialists who love to administer expensive tests.
