Palm-Reading the Invisible Hand: A Critical Examination of Pro-Competitive Reform Proposals
Sigelman, Daniel W.
Journal of Health Politics, Policy and Law. 1982 Winter; 6(4): 578-620.
The current emphasis of government policymakers on stemming health care cost inflation by means of marketplace competition rather than regulation is assessed in terms of its potential impact on those covered by employer-paid health insurance, the poor, and the elderly. The competitive strategy is seen as creating serious problems of equity and access to care for the poor and for those at high medical risk. (KIE abstract)
