Booknews
Presents a variety of perspectives on the accomplishments and dilemmas of planned markets for medical care either implemented or proposed in Britain, Sweden, Finland, the Netherlands, Austria, and the US, primarily considering the broad conceptual notions that underlie them. Empirically and conceptually reviews the political issues in designing and introducing a system of contracted medical services, the trade-offs between incentives and accountability to increase efficiency, and the practical challenges of constructing entrepreneurial providers. The 11 papers are revised from presentations at a September 1993 workshop in Stockholm. Distributed by Taylor & Francis. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
