Our Changing Economics Landscape - 12/16 Daypass - How American Health Care Became So Chaotic
How did the American health care system develop its fragmented, irrational form? The answer is found in an unlikely place—the construction of the modern insurance system through collective bargaining in industry in the postwar years. The organized economic power of industrial workers had a transformative effect on the health care market and reshaped health care policy, as workers’ efforts to preserve their own health and well-being interacted with emerging deindustrialization and rising social inequality. Gabriel Winant is a historian at the University of Chicago. His first book, The Next Shift: The Fall of Industry and the Rise of Health Care in Rust Belt America, was published this year by Harvard University Press.
