NEW TO THIS EDITION

  • Totally re-written chapter on managed care.
  • New analyses on "who pays" for health insurance.
  • New chapter on economic "bads" (Chapter 25). Most analyses look at things that are good for us - "bad" items such as cigarettes are usually not covered.
  • New chapter on pharmaceuticals (Chapter 26). Rather than a simple "industry study," the text examines portions of the pharmaceutical industry with important economic content. These include questions as to the optimal combinations of drug therapies and other economic technologies, patent protection issues, and price discrimination by pharmaceutical firms.
