Prolegomena to a Post Keynesian health economics
AbstractPost Keynesian economics has no specific association with, or has made no specific contribution to, Health economics or healthcare policy. In one sense this is perhaps unsurprising. Post Keynesian economics is for many a distinct approach to macroeconomics. Nevertheless, it has always invoked a strong microeconomic supply-side analysis and thus the purpose of this paper is to make some prefatory remarks as to the types of contributions Post Keynesian economics can make to the economics of healthcare and healthcare policy. The relevance of Post Keynesian themes, such as the relevance of history, uncertainty, distributional issues, and the importance of political and economic institutions for healthcare economics and health policy, is highlighted.
