Overview

This examination of the economic analysis of medical markets and the production of health traces the economic rationale and development of the medical care organization. It examines transactions between patients and health care providers to see how profits are made, costs covered, contracts written and regulations formed. It also uses a macroeconomic perspective to explore the dynamics of change within the health care system and to consider determinants of national health spending and the role of governments in public and private health.
