This book provides students of all backgrounds with an accessible introduction to the modern field of health economics. The authors emphasize the link between economic theory and real-world health policy, covering both the canonical models of health insurance and modern policymaking dilemmas. The discussion is international in scope, with several chapters dedicated to comparative health policy and empirical examples drawn from countries around the world. The authors cover the latest research from this exciting field, including the Oregon Medicaid Experiment and the potential impacts of US health reform.

The book also includes topical chapters covering the obesity epidemic, economic epidemiology, socioeconomic health disparities, and behavioral economics, as well as hundreds of exercises to help solidify and extend student understanding. While the book contains some sections with advanced mathematical material, it is designed to be used by introductory economics students, public health students, medical students, and doctoral students alike. Dozens of images and cartoons add levity to the text and help to illustrate the principles of health economics as they apply to everyday life.
