Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise: Five Steps to a Better Health Care System

By Daniel P. Kessler, R. Glenn Hubbard, John Cogan
American Enterprise Institute Press, 2014

The authors present their prescription for healing the U.S. healthcare system. Their proposal emphasizing private market competition includes: tax, insurance, and malpractice reform; an upgrade of health information; and greater competition by providers and insurers. Appendices offer estimates of the cost-saving financial impact of these reform policies. The book discusses how several problems including glaring gaps in the quality and efficiency of care, high rates of uninsurance, and out-of-control cost, can be resolved by empowering patients.
