Here are some health care resources for people that are new to the health sector or want to stay current, as viewed through the lens of an economist. Unfortunately, it isn’t an extensive list for 2 reasons: (1) health care changes fast so things get out of date (for example, my favorite health economics textbook was published in 2005 so it doesn’t mention the Affordable Care Act) and (2) I view health care through an economist’s lens and economists write few books and general-interest articles. Nevertheless, there are some reasonably good resources below. Please email david.ridley@duke.edu to offer recommendations and alert me to broken links.
