US Health Care: Need and Greed

This first-year seminar course examines health care in the U.S. from an economic perspective; we hope: (1) to recognize the relevance of economic analysis to health and medical care issues, (2) to analyze public policy in health and medical care from an economic perspective, and (3) to understand the mechanisms of the health care delivery system within its broad social, political and economic context. Furthermore, we will explore the changing nature of health and medical care in the U.S. , and the implications of this for medical practice, medical education and research, and health policy. Student smay receive credit for only one of ECON 100, ECON 110G or ECON 112G.
