Health Economics

by Friedrich Breyer

Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
Publication Date: Thursday, January 30, 1997
Number of Pages: 400
ISBN: 0195108132


Book Summary:
Translated from the German and adapted with examples for the U.S. and other English-speaking audiences, Health Economics is the most complete text available on the economics of health and health care delivery. Appropriate for both advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students of
economics, this text develops the theory necessary to examine issues analytically, presenting empirical evidence on each issue and summarizing results for easy comprehension. Issues discussed include the "cost explosion" in health care, the role of physicians and the power of medical associations,
and the control of technological change in medicine. Without neglecting ethical concerns, modern microeconomic theory is applied to formulate theoretical implications and predictions, and key arguments are summarized to facilitate follow-up and review. The text explains the institutional differences
of health care sectors in many industrialized countries, reflecting these differences by using microeconomic modelling. Rather than simplifying the issues facing today's health care systems, Health Economics seeks to model existing complexities as they are, showing students how economics can be
adapted to reflect the views of the average person. Due to the rapidly expanding level of sophistication in health economics, the text also provides key analytic tools required to understand research that is currently in progress.
