DESCRIPTION

The growing public concern over rapidly rising health care costs, particularly hospital care, is understandable, with direct and indirect expenditures now amounting to about $100 billion each year. In this book, economist Paul Joskow explores the reasons for these increasing costs, the burdens of excessive hospital expenditures on the economy; and the government's role in reducing them and eliminating inefficiencies that plague the system.
