Editorial Reviews


"His book is a helpful assessment of the decision-makers: individual patient, physician, and third party insurer....His arguements are thorough. He does not back away from discussing some of the most hotly debated topics in medical rationing. For the reader interested in a comprehensive study of rationing from a new perspective of who decides, Mark Hall's volume is a good place to begin." --Ethics and Medicine

"A fresh and comprehensive exploration of how health care rationing decisions are made."--Issues in Law and Medicine

"An ideal book for readers with an interest in careful argumentation and analysis as well as an informed and incisive examination of literature from a wide range of disciplines, including ethics, political theory, economics, sociology, and law....An unqualified success..."--Medical Humanities Review

"Making Medical Spending Decisions is a formidable contribution to the rationing debate. Professor Hall's conclusion that physicians inevitably must serve as both economic and treatment agents should not only refuel the controversy over the physician's role at the bedside, but also provide an important springboard for discussion of physicians as overseers or case managers."--Journal of Legal Medicine

Noted in Journal of Ethics, Law and Aging

"This a coherent whole, not a mere collection of essays. Hall draws on a remarkable range of sources, seeming equally at home in the legal, philosophical, and policy literature that he surveys. This book is a major contribution toward solving one of the most important problems faced by our country--taming the beast of health care cost inflation...."--Journal of Health Politics, Policy and Law

"...this is a compelling work. Professor Hall has opened the way for a meaningful dialogue on the uses and limitations of physician bedside rationing, ably laying the groundwork for further thought....The desire for more should be seen as a tribute to the success of this work in convincing the reader of its basic premise that physicians are not bound to ingore cost in clinical decisionmaking."--Michigan Law Review
