“The health-care system i s broken, very broken,” says David B. Snow Jr. As chairman and CEO of Medco Health Solutions Inc. (MHS), the largest pharmacy benefits management (PBM) company in the U.S., Snow says Medco is in a position to help fix health care in America.
The figures backing up his claim are alarming. Last year U.S. employer-sponsored health-care premiums rose 6.1 percent, more than double the 2.6 percent rate of inflation. Health-care expenditures in the U.S. reached $2.3 trillion in 2007, according to the National Coalition on Health Care.

FROM NYSE EURONEXT CEO DUNCAN NIEDERAUERF
During these times of financial tumult, NYSE Euronext experienced unprecedented volumes, proving that transparent markets do work. The Exchange’s technological capacity as well as the people who maintain fair and orderly markets in turbulent times are among the reasons NYSE Euronext has one of the world’s most amazing brand names. My charge is to protect and defend our great brand while diversifying and growing the enterprise.
How are we accomplishing this? Through customer focus and innovation, two key themes of this issue. From our cover story on Medco to the profiles of Orbitz and Rackspace (pictured, right), an extreme focus on serving clients — be they patients, travelers or technocrats — is the mantra of many executives. But as leaders, we are also coping with market uncertainty and economic weakness. On page 8, CEOs speak out on issues affecting U.S. global competitiveness and offer advice to the incoming president.
The interview with U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao (page 10) also emphasizes the need to keep our workforce competitive, to stimulate job creation and to ensure that public policy doesn’t stifle economic growth. She also talks about the taxing effect of the energy crisis. The article on page 39 looks at some of the country’s largest and most innovative projects, from wind to solar to nuclear, that will boost U.S. energy independence, security and the ability to compete globally.
Our new Transformations department (page 12) explores the growth of 233-year-old Bowne & Co., a storied company that helped usher Wall Street into the electronic age.
Similarly, NYSE Euronext is embracing — and sometimes driving — the dramatic shifts on Wall Street. Beginning on page 42, you’ll read about our recent acquisition of the American Stock Exchange®, which makes us the third-largest U.S. options marketplace while enhancing our leadership in ET Fs, cash equities, closed-end funds and structured products. ...
