Editorial Reviews


?This book's theme is the need to reform medicine internally by returning it to a beneficence-based professional model. The authors begin by analyzing current crises in the cost of medical care, access to medical care, and professional credibility. They find these crises rooted in what they label cost containment' and health policy based on rights and justice.' The harms caused by these approaches are compared to the advantages of a micro approach to health care decision making based on the principle of beneficence. Provocative and interesting book that merits careful reading by advanced undergraduate and graduate students and professionals concerned with health care policy.?-Choice

Book Description

This book explores the role of beneficence and cost control in health-care systems. The book's primary concern of morally improving medicine is achieved by dividing the argument into two parts. The first defines the crisis in health-care and justifies beneficence. The second part offers practical suggestions on implementing beneficence into the system. Medicine and Money is one of the few books to provide concrete suggestions on improving the health-care system from the micro level for addressing cost concerns in a morally acceptable manner.
