About this title


Fuchs (economics, Stanford U.) presents the basic concepts and facts necessary to understand the ongoing debate about health care reform in the US. Any program that benefits society as a whole will inevitable burden certain individuals and groups, he says, and the critical issues are decoupling health care from employment, taming but not destroying technological advances, and coping with the increased costs of an aging population. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.


As in his earlier writings, Fuchs repeatedly asks interesting and thoughtful questions and presents information and analyses that are important for understanding current health policy issues...[His] wisdom and sagacity shine through at every point. (David Mechanic Health Affairs)

A book on health policy by one of the founders of the field of health economics could hardly be more timely...This book is an example of the important contributions economics can make to the policy debate. (Donald S. Kenkel Journal of Economic Literature)

Victor Fuchs has been a prolific and thorough analyst of health policy in the USA. This book, which brings together a series of updated and revised papers that have been published previously in medical and economics journals, continues this tradition and offers stimulation and intelligence in conceptual, empirical, and policy areas...The Future of Health Policy is written lucidly, in a non-technical way, and offers much stimulation to clinicians and economists alike. Those in government should read it and learn how 'markets' in health care do not really work. (Alan Maynard The Lancet)

Provocative...Victor Fuchs has long been a leading author on health policy...In The Future of Health Policy he provides a scholarly primer on the many and competing proposals for reform. (Steve Heilig San Francisco Chronicle)
