Editorial Reviews

Review

The best alternative to manage competition come from John Goodman and Gerald Musgrave in Patient Power. --Stephen Chapman, Chicago Tribune

Goodman and Musgrave are entirely convincing on the direction we should be traveling. --William F. Buckley, Jr.

A thorough economic analysis of the health care system in the United States is complex, not because special theories are needed, but because health care is the most regulated and most politicized sector of our economy. It takes considerable understanding of economics, medical care, politics, ethics, and emotions before anyone can obtain a unified view of health care. Our book, Patient Power, is a synthesis of those aspects. This abridged volume is a condensation of that synthesis. The thesis of this book is simple: if we want to solve the nation's health care crisis, we must apply the same commonsense principles to medical care that we apply to other goods and services. --Peter Moore, Playboy

Format: Paperback
Every American and every Congressman and woman should be given this book to read. We are now going through the lefts attack on free enterprise and capitalism. They want us all under a massive centralized government health agency that will destroy the private healthcare industry, raise prices dramatically, lower our medical care quality, and ration healthcare to all Americans. Patient Power demonstrates how everyone in the US can receive excellent and affordable healthcare by empowering individuals and families and returning healthcare to where it belongs to the patient and their doctors.

I'm an economist, and have read dozens of books on health care. This is the best book on how to improve our health care system ever written for the lay public.

Format: Paperback
This book completely ignores reality in its analysis. Centuries of psychology and history has shown that unfettered free markets don't work. This book describes the perfect plan... if you're an extremely rich and perfectly rational individual. Otherwise, not so much.
