What are the Most Unforgivable Problems in the U.S. Health Care System?
Brown Bag Seminar Series

Joseph White
Luxenberg Family Professor of Public Policy Director of the Center for Policy Studies Department of Political Science Case Western Reserve University

112 Paterson Street, 1st floor conference room
Joseph White, PhD is Luxenberg Family Professor of Public Policy and Director of the Center for Policy Studies in the Department of Political Science at Case Western Reserve University. His research can be divided into five related categories: budget politics and policy within the United States, comparisons of health care policies across advanced industrial democracies, politics of health care reform in the United States, health care cost control, and Social Security and Medicare policy and politics. Dr. White’s focus in this talk is partly a matter of ethics (is excessive care at the end of life all that important compared to all the people who don't get care? What about excessive transfers of income from the sick to providers of care?). Another issue is prioritizing problems based on the likelihood of a solution (it's harder to forgive failures to fix things that we know how to fix). Posing the question about comparative ethics or problem selection can lead to further questions, such as what's so terrible about variations; how should we think about inequalities in health as opposed to health care?
