Description

What new theories, evidence, and policies have shaped health economics in the 21st century?

Editors Mark Pauly, Thomas McGuire, and Pedro Pita Barros assemble the expertise of leading authorities in this survey of substantive issues.  In 16 chapters they cover recent developments in health economics, from medical spending growth to the demand for health care, the markets for pharmaceutical products, the medical workforce, and equity in health and health care. Its global perspective, including an emphasis on low and middle-income countries, will result in the same high citations that made Volume 1 (2000) a foundational text.

Quotes and reviews

"The Handbook of Health Economics has been at the core of the reading list for our graduate programme since its original publication. This new volume will enhance its position as a comprehensive and authoritative guide to the literature and broadens the scope of the original Handbook."

--Andrew M. Jones, University of York

 

 "This wholly-new Handbook is wonderfully up-to-date, comprehensive, accessible, and destined to be widely read by researchers, students, and policymakers. Kudos for having commissioned such outstanding authors and chosen these topics for coverage."

--Randall P. Ellis, Boston University, and President, American Society of Health Economists (ASHEcon)

 

"An absolutely vital must-have reference volume.  The sixteen chapters provide detailed, thorough and readable surveys of current conceptual and empirical issues, each written by distinguished active researchers."

--Ernst R. Berndt, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology

 

"Volume 1 of the Handbook rapidly gained a place amongst the most used - and borrowed - books on the shelf. Now Volume 2 looks certain to match that success, comprehensively covering more recent developments and the burgeoning international health economics literature with authority, concision and verve. Essential."

--Alastair Gray, University of Oxford
