‘A valuable text combining health economic theory and its application to real world issues in health care. Folland et al's text has become essential reading on the health economics postgraduate courses I have taught over the last fifteen years.’ ― Steve Parrott, Reader in Health Economics, University of York, UK
‘When you think you've reached the end of the chapter, numerous references take you on a journey with further research - …[The Economics of Health and Health Care] that evokes respect and admiration for health economics’ ― Sime Smolic PhD, Faculty of Economics & Business, University of Zagreb, Croatia
‘The 8th edition of The Economics of Health and Health Care provides a comprehensive survey of the field. Students in traditional economics programs as well as public health and nursing programs will appreciate the insights the book offers into the rapidly growing field of health economics.’ ― J. Mick Tilford, Professor and Chair at the Department of Health Policy and Management, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, USA.
‘This comprehensive text can be adopted in whole or part for a variety of learners, from dedicated economics students to clinicians such as nurses, to engineers entering the health technology industry. Folland, Goodman, and Stano’s book offers a combination of economic theory and relevant examples that bring the issues of health economics and policy to life in the classroom. The exceptional organization of the text lends itself to its use in short courses that don’t allow all the content to be covered, and the clear and engaging writing encourages students to continue reading after a course is completed.’ ― Joanne Spetz, PhD, FAAN, Professor of Health Economics at the University of California, San Francisco
