Study by Gerald Friedman referenced in news analysis on projects the U.S. government could have funded with part of the $1.46 trillion spent on war-related costs between 2001 and June 2017

A news analysis on projects the U.S. government could have funded with just part of the $1.46 trillion spent on war-related costs between 2001 and June 2017 includes a reference to a study done by Gerald C. Friedman, economics, that says paying for expanded Medicare for more than 16 million people would cost about $5,527 per person. Friedman is incorrectly identified as being from the University of Amherst. (Newsweek, 11/6/17)
