Why We Spend Too Much on Health Care...and What We Can Do About It
Joseph L. Rue, Richard C. Wesbury, Stewart Bast
University Press of America
Monday, May 03, 1993
Number of Pages:
This book explodes the myths surrounding health care spending by showing that the U.S. has faced the public health challenges of AIDS, drug abuse, and teenage pregnancy with a lower rate of spending growth than most countries. The authors blame high U.S. health care costs on government spending, tax breaks for health insurance premiums, and over-regulation of the industry. They present a bold free-market plan for lowering unnecessary health care spending while retaining world-class quality and expanding access for the needy.
