Folland, Goodman, and Stano’s bestselling The Economics of Health and Health Care 8th edition (PDF) textbook offers the market-leading overview of all aspects of Health Economics, teaching through core economic themes, rather than concepts unique to the health care economy.

In addition to its revised treatment of health insurance, the textbook also introduces the key literature on social capital as it applies to public and individual health, as well as looking at public health initiatives relating to population health and economic equity, and comparing numerous policies across Western countries, the developing world and China. It provides up-to-date discussions on current issues, as well as a comprehensive bibliography with over 1,100 references. Extra material and teaching resources are now also available through the brand new companion website, which provides full sets of exercises, presentation slides, discussion questions, and a test bank.This ebook demonstrates the multiplicity of ways in which economists analyze the health care system, and is suitable for courses in Health Policy/Systems, Health Economics, or Public Health, taken by health services students or practitioners.
