Economists on Health Care

The latest issue of The Economists’ Voice is a special issue on health care reform. David Cutler explains the economics of health reform, while Mark Duggan and Robert Kocher weigh in on health-insurance exchanges. “Put simply health care reform will succeed or fail?based on two fundamental criteria: Do people?get the coverage that they were promised, and?that they want?” writes Cutler, who played a role in crafting the legislation. “And, do we change the delivery of medicine to promote high quality, lower?cost care?” [%comments]
