Summary
"In Healthy, Wealthy, and Fair, a distinguished group of health policy experts charts the stark disparities in health and wealth in the United States. The authors explain how the inequities arise, why they persist, and what makes them worse. Growing income inequality, high poverty rates, and inadequate health care coverage: All three trends help account for the United States's health troubles. The corrosive effects of market ideology and government stalemate, the contributors argue, have also proved a powerful obstacle to effective and more egalitarian solutions." "A clarion call for a populist uprising to end the stalemate over health reform, Healthy, Wealthy, and Fair outlines concrete policy proposals for reform - tapping bold new ideas as well as incremental changes to existing programs. This important work will be indispensable to all those who care about health, inequality, and American democracy."--Jacket
