Two economists study the patchwork system of health insurance we have in the U.S. and make sweeping recommendations about how a national insurance mandate would provide better care to more people. Their thinking is down-to-earth and sounds even more accessible as delivered by Susan Bennett, whose performance strikes the right balance between the tone of a policy expert and that of a thoughtful person who cares about how government policies affect ordinary citizens. The authors offer poignant examples of how coverage inconsistencies and Band-Aid modifications to existing insurance practices cause deaths and suffering that could be avoided with universal coverage. With help from Susan Bennett's performance, they tackle broad policy problems and offer potential solutions with clarity, robust rationales, and notable compassion.
