Public economics in current health policy
This article focuses on the role of the economics of public sector, shortly said public economics in current health policy and searches for the most important and strongest area for its adoption and application. It is based on the hypothesis, that currently, health policy in the Czech Republic heads to the model of passive solving of emerging health care problems of the population and applying (quasi)market allocation principles. Out of this hypothesis two research questions outcome. First, whether this approach is consistent with the principles of the public sector, rationality of resources allocation and population health condition achievements. Second, how much we mix the problem of social solidarity and economic effectiveness. Moreover, whether the current withdrawal from solidarity is accompanied by risks of market failure and thus suboptimal allocation of newly introduced private resources. In this context the dimensions of effectiveness and risks of mixing social acceptability and rational resource allocation are analyzed.
