"Extend the discussion of medical profession into other non-physician professionals' role in addressing the healthcare issue, such as NPs & PAs." - Reviewer's Comment No. 1, Bentham Science, September 2016 "This seems a timely book. It is an important discussion in the western world as to how best finance the health care system. I expect there will be a wide audience for this book. I am attracted to the idea that there is not only a critique, but also attempts to point to the ways out. Because of my own expertise I am interested in the analysis between economy and morality that the book promises." - Reviewer's Comment No. 1, Bentham Science, September 2016
