Opis: The Cost Disease - William J. Baumol

The exploding cost of health care in the United States is a source of widespread alarm. Similarly, the upward spiral of college tuition fees is cause for serious concern. In this concise and illuminating book, well-known economist William Baumol explores the causes of these seemingly intractable problems and offers a surprisingly simple explanation. Baumol identifies the 'cost disease' as a major source of rapidly rising costs in service sectors of the economy. Once we understand that disease, he explains, effective responses become apparent. Baumol presents his analysis with characteristic clarity, tracing the fast-rising prices of health care and education in the U.S. and other major industrial nations, then examining the underlying causes of the phenomenon, which have to do with the nature of providing labour-intensive services. The news is good, Baumol reassures, because the nature of the disease is such that society will be able to afford the rising costs. "'A provocative and timely critique of the fallacies in the conventional wisdom that we can no longer afford good education and decent health care.' (Sir Harold Evans, author of They Made America) 'It's a testament to Professor Baumol's lucid prose, though, that economists and noneconomists alike will find it easy to grasp his surprisingly comforting argument for why we shouldn't panic... This book is a quick read, packed with charts and case studies. But it is the author's command of storytelling that makes it not just digestible but also enjoyable.' (Amy Wallace, The New York Times)"
