The analytical strategy of ordinary well being economics has to this point did not adequately account for the character of care.

At least in developed economies, the amount of resources dedicated to health care is growing and massive. Robert McMaster and John B. Davis argue further that health care poses a major challenge to standard assumptions in mainstream economic analysis. They stress that the individual does not stand alone, and is entrenched in a web of social relations, invoking complex and varied motivations. The effect of this challenging and well-argued ebook should spread well beyond health care economics alone.’ ― Geoffrey M Hodgson, Research Professor in Business Studies, University of Hertfordshire, UK
