Format: Paperback
Hold onto your hat and buckle up for a thrilling ride through medical history: from pay-for-performance in ancient Babylon (if surgery was not successful, they cut off the surgeon's hand) to the 2010 skullduggery and imaginative Congressional bookkeeping used to pass ObamaCare. The authors then go through the litany of the many "cures" proposed for what ails medicine.

The book could have used better help from the editor, but this is a good, informative, and easy read from two real experts in medical economics--one a practicing physician and the other a reknowned academic economist. I would recommend the book to anyone interested in what's happened, what's happening, and what's likely to happen to the nation's microeconomic medical sector in the throes of a government macroeconomic cartel-like makeover.
