Pressestimmen""Healthy Markets?" does what we always want and rarely get in an edited volume: combine the different perspectives of many fine scholars into a whole that is greater than the parts. The essays are sometimes contentious, often brilliant, and always illuminating. They add up to a rich assessment both of health policy in the mid-1990s and of the forces that will determine what happens next."--Joseph White, Tulane University Medical Center
