    Abstract

    This session will explore the impact of the U.S. health care system on U.S. labor markets. ; Why do employers believe that rising health care costs are a major cause for concern when economists insist that workers are the ones who actually bear the costs? What are the implications of large health care liabilities for the long-run viability of U.S. employers? How do rising health care costs affect employment and compensation decisions and labor mobility? Do behavioral insights shed any light on these issues?
