|dc.description||This is a study of the Irish medical care system from the standpoint of health economics. Though there is some technical material. particularly in Chapters 6 and 7, for the most pan the study is accessible to the general reader. The medical care delivery and financing systems of Europe and North America grew up Over the twentieth century with little concern for or attention to the implicit incentive 51 Iectures they contained. Instead! the growth patterns of these systems depended on each country's unique history. as well as ideology, party politics expediency and the relative strengths of such factors as the medical professions, civil servants, and religious organisations. As a consequence of inattention to incentives, medical care systems grew increasingly inenicient in their overall economic rationality and explosively inflationary. In the past decade, in most of these countries Ihere has been an intense re-examination of medical care structures and at least the beginnings or systcmatic reform.||en|
