Health Reform without Side Effects
by Mark V. Pauly
Publisher: Hoover Institution Press 2010
Number of pages: 112
The author offers a detailed look at the individual insurance market in the United States. He explains how it works, suggests approaches to improvement that build on what currently works well, and provides a realistic assessment of how much improvement we can demand and expect. Pauly concludes that, although there are some serious deficiencies in today's individual insurance market, the current criticisms are overly harsh, often based on anecdote and speculation rather than fact.
