Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Applies the principles of economics to such questions as the market for health care, the desirability and form of government intervention, and the trade-off between equity and efficiency. Also reviews and evaluates the mechanisms that have been introduced in various countries to regulate both the demand and supply sides of the health-care markets, and draws conclusions about who should intervene and how. Acidic paper. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
