This topical collection by eminent scholars examines the growing role of private markets in the provision and finance of health and welfare services in six western countries - Britain, France, Italy, Sweden, Canada and the US - and three Central European countries - Hungary, Poland and Slovenia.
The authors chart the extent and nature of private markets in health and welfare and consider whether the principal beneficiaries have been the state, the consumers or the commercial providers. The services covered include domiciliary and residential services for elderly and disabled people, housing and a varied range of health services.
