What's Your Life Worth?: Health Care Rationing-- who Lives? who Dies? who Decides?
Examines the issue of rationing including its concept, examples of rationing around the world and in the US, cost-effectiveness and cost-benefit research, quality and value of life issues, the Oregon Plan, and costs and "rational rationing." The book is devoid of high-level quantitative analysis or technical jargon; however, the economic analysis is well done and understandable for readers who want the economics expressed clearly. The author uses an impressive list of journal and other economic studies, which he explains. He also makes good use of the news and other print media to provide current applications.
