Item description for Fads, Fallacies And Foolishness in Medical Care Management And Policy by Theodore R. Marmor...

This collection of articles takes up a key set of what the author regards as particularly misleading fads and fashions developments that produce a startling degree of foolishness in contemporary discussions of how to organize, deliver, finance, pay for and regulate medical care services in modern industrial democracies. The policy fads addressed include the celebration of explicit rationing as a major cost control instrument, the belief in a "basic package" of health insurance benefits to constrain costs, the faith that contemporary cross-national research can deliver a large number of transferable models, and the notion that broadening the definition of what is meant by health will constitute some sort of useful advance in practice.

Reviews - What do customers think about Fads, Fallacies And Foolishness in Medical Care Management And Policy?

A Voice of Reason  Oct 22, 2007
Few subjects bring about more nonsensical discussion than America's health care system. In this volume of fine essays, Marmor cuts through cant and describes the realities of health care delivery in this country. He clearly and concisely portrays the characteristics that have made America's system the most inefficient and expensive in the world.
Superb writing on major issues  Jul 15, 2007
Marmor is a bit iconoclastic - instead of promoting a specific policy for US healthcare, he points out how vaporous or inept many of the current dialogs are. His point is a bit like Al Gore in "Assault on Reason" - the level of dialog and clear thinking is too insufficient to make progress on major health care problems. This is a book of several essays, most printed in the last few years in health policy academic journals. He also fits in a priceless sense of humor.
