This is the most complete text available on the economics of health behavior and health care delivery. Appropriate both for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students of economics, this text provides the key analytical tools required to understand current research. Issues discussed include the "cost explosion" in health care, the power of medical associations, the search for remuneration systems with favorable incentives, and technological change in medicine. Rather than simplifying the issues facing today's healthcare systems, the book models existing complexities as they are, adapting economics to reflect the views of the average person.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews of the second edition:

"The second edition of Health Economics is based on the German version of 1992. It contains all important facts on the specific characteristics of health products and global health markets at an advanced economic level. ... The detailed mathematical formulas and derivation of theories are helpful for a better understanding of methodology ... . Each chapter concludes with a summary and exercise questions which turn it into a valuable workbook. ... a valuable work of reference for experts as well." (Simone Torka, Journal of Public Health, Vol. 18, May, 2010)
