Review of Elisabeth Rosenthal's "An American Sickness" (August 24th)
Dr. Elisabeth Rosenthal's recent, "An American Sickness, How Healthcare Became Big Business and How You Can Take It Back," has received considerable attention. Here is my review of her work titled, "Healthcare as a Moral Universe," i.e., at: http://thehealthcareblog.com/blog/2017/08/21/healthcare-as-a-moral-universal/.
If you're interested in how we find ourselves in a situation where, as Dr. Rosenthal notes, health care "attends more or less single-mindedly to its own profits," I'd recommend Stephen Metcalf's recent, "Neoliberalism, The Idea That Swallowed the World." It is at: https://www.theguardian.com/news/2017/aug/18/neoliberalism-the-idea-that-changed-the-world.
