Crony Capitalism in US Health Care Anatomy of a Dysfunctional System (Routledge Focus on Business and Management) (Original PDF from Publisher)

1.1.Description

The United States political landscape has become excessively reliant on financial contributions, particularly within the healthcare sector, which ranks as the top spender on political lobbying among the 13 industrial sectors in the U.S. economy.

Crony Capitalism in US Health Care: Anatomy of a Dysfunctional System addresses the systemic issues in the U.S. health care system through the lens of crony capitalism, a theoretical framework that hasn’t been extensively applied to analyze the shortcomings in this domain.

Examining the roles of key players such as politicians, interest groups, pharmaceutical companies, insurers, hospitals, physicians, and the general public, the book contends that crony capitalism is a pervasive force, leading to inefficiencies, waste, and overall dissatisfaction.

The analysis dismisses current reform initiatives as inadequate, proposing that they fail to address the root cause—crony capitalism. This book provides valuable insights for researchers, policymakers, and students in health care management, public administration, health policy, economics, and political science.

Summary

Crony Capitalism in US Health Care: Anatomy of a Dysfunctional System scrutinizes the United States health care system through the lens of crony capitalism, an analytical framework previously underexplored in this context.

The book delves into the profound impact of money on the U.S. political system and highlights the healthcare industry’s substantial expenditure on political lobbying.

By employing the crony capitalism framework, the author examines the roles of key players, including politicians, pharmaceutical companies, insurers, hospitals, physicians, medical device manufacturers, and the general public. The analysis reveals how crony capitalism has led to inefficiencies, waste, and systemic malaise within the healthcare system, challenging current reform efforts.

The book provides a comprehensive diagnosis and prescriptions for addressing the root causes of dysfunction, making it a valuable resource for researchers, policymakers, and students in healthcare management, policy, economics, and political science.
