Publisher Comments:

Delivering the most detailed and exhaustive content available, market-leading HEALTH CARE ECONOMICS, 7th Edition demonstrates how basic economic concepts, principles, and theories can be used to think about and illustrate various health care issues. This introductory economics text is geared toward graduate students who will be medical and health services managers, administrators, or executives. The seventh edition of HEALTH CARE ECONOMICS includes recent data on the medical sector, updated figures and tables, the latest information on legislative changes affecting this industry, and new literature and research. It also provides an insightful historical perspective within which these changes are occurring.

Synopsis:

This much anticipated new edition of Health Care Economics continues its legacy as a leader in its field. Written by a distinguished economist and educator, the sixth edition maintains the book's analytical approach in its treatment of political economics. Through comprehensive discussions, appendices, tables and figures, the author consistently illustrates the value of economics in understanding public policy issues that affect the medical services sector. Both veterans in the field of economics and readers who are new to this area of study will appreciate the book's in-depth and straightforward treatment of important topics.

About the Author

Paul J. Feldstein is Professor and Robert Gumbiner Chair in Health Care Management at the Paul Merage School of Business, University of California, Irvine, a position he has held since 1987. He previously served at the University of Michigan as Professor in both the Department of Economics and the School of Public Health. Before that, he was Director of the Division of Research at the American Hospital Association. Professor Feldstein has written more 70 articles on health care as well as seven books, including Health Policy Issues: An Economic Perspective on Health Reform, 5e (2011) and The Politics of Health Legislation: An Economic Perspective, 3e (2006). During several leaves from the University, Professor Feldstein worked at the Office of Management and Budget, Social Security Administration, and the World Health Organization. He has served as a consultant to many government and private health agencies, an expert witness on health anti-trust issues--including the case of the FTC v. The AMA, which was decided by the U.S. Supreme Court--and as a member of the boards of directors of several health care firms. Professor Feldstein received his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago.
