Editorial Reviews

Review

A new way to understand our health care system. This book offers x-ray slices of many parts of our complex system, a CT scan that penetrates the workings of all hospitals, doctors offices, health insurance companies, etc. Economists will love it, but everyone who wants to understand more about American health care should study it. Conover’s quantitative “just the facts” approach helps us cut through political rhetoric by understanding what makes our system tick. (Representative Jim Cooper)

What Bill James is to baseball and Webster’s is to words, The American Health Economy Illustrated will be to our health care debates. Since smart decisions always start with clarity about the facts, this book will help us all to get a lot smarter in this critical area. (Governor Mitch Daniels)

This volume is a very useful collection of the facts everyone needs to understand the problems facing our health care system and the issues involved in health care reform. It may be the best single-volume guide to the health care economy. (Martin Feldstein, George F. Baker Professor of Economics, Harvard University, and president emeritus, National Bureau of Economic Research, George F. Baker Professor of Economics, Harvard University, and president emeritus, National Bureau of Economic Research)

This should be the 'go-to' resource for anyone looking for key statistics and trends about the American health economy. Conover does a remarkable job organizing an enormous quantity of information and making it accessible to students, academics, policymakers, and anyone else who cares about the health sector. One could search the Internet for hours and not find the wealth of information in this book (David Dranove, Walter McNerney Professor of Health Industry Management and professor of management and strategy, Cornell University, Walter McNerney Professor of Health Industry Management and professor of management and strategy, Cornell University)
