Healthy Competition: What's Holding Back Health Care and how to Free it
Government control has driven health care costs sky-high at the same time that it has reduced the quality of care. As America's health care system cries out for reform, should policymakers embrace even more government planning, or should they fight for more individual freedom? In this updated edition of their 2005 book, the authors tackle proposals that would let government manage even more of America's health care sector. The continuing problem of ever-rising health care costs makes this book as timely as ever.
