Abstract:

Healthcare rationing is coming, with a vengeance. If you value your health, you'd better understand it--and be ready. In this book, one of the world's leading healthcare economists offers a hard-nosed analysis of today's soaring healthcare costs--and shows how it will feel to be at the mercy of a system that might choose not to cure you. Dranove previews the transition from today's ad hoc rationing to an era of ""rational rationing, "" in which economic analysis of the value of human lives and specific treatments is both explicit and routine. He assesses the mixed results of rational rationing.
