Why are some people healthy and others not? : the determinants of health of populations by Theodore R Marmor( Book )

14 editions published between 1994 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the mid-1970s, the ancient view that the determinants of health go well beyond medical care has reemerged in most western democracies. Yet despite nearly two decades of repeated intellectual efforts to redirect health policy away from curative medicine to more fundamental interventions, the task remains largely undone. The purpose of this volume is to ask why, and to suggest answers and evidence about the determinants of population health that may help redirect national health policies." "The book provides a conceptual framework that permits the integration of evidence arising from a diverse range of disciplines. In particular, it highlights observations that have heretofore been difficult to explain within traditional clinical or health-promotion understandings of what makes some populations healthier than others. Individual chapters explore the role of factors as diverse as culture, genetic predisposition, biological pathways, and social and economic environments. Other chapters discuss how to convert this deepened understanding into changes in health policy." "This unusual volume is, in every sense, a collaborative effort, the culmination of several years' interaction among the members of the Population Health Program of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (C.I.A.R.). While each chapter has one or more members of this group as designated authors, all chapters reflect the influence of the collaboration, as well as of the distinguished C.I.A.R. colleagues from many disciplines with whom members have interacted since the group's inception in 1987"--Jacket
Poverty policy; a compendium of cash transfer proposals by Theodore R Marmor( Book )

26 editions published between 1971 and 2017 in English and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cash transfers are but one form of income supplementation, and a fuller presentation of antipoverty proposals would include both transfers in-kind (such as food, housing, and medical care) and human investment programs aimed at increasing the earning capacity of individuals. Much discussion has centered on how to reduce poverty by getting more cash income in the hands of poor people. This collection brings together in one accessible volume the most widely discussed plans for reducing financial poverty in the United States through cash transfers."--Provided by publisher
Understanding health care reform by Theodore R Marmor( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The reform of American medical care is the most important topic on the nation's domestic agenda and the centerpiece of the Clinton administration's plans for social policy and long-term economic development. This book, written by a preeminent analyst of medical politics and policy who is a frequent adviser to Congress, helps to clarify the current debate over the President's bill and the proposed alternatives to it. It is essential reading. Theodore Marmor, whose work has appeared in the nation's major newspapers and magazines, as well as in scholarly journals and books, here presents some of his most recent writings that illuminate the historical, political, and economic considerations behind various proposals now under debate. Marmor explains what we can and cannot expect from reform of American medicine, and he addresses the many conflicting claims about remedies for America's problems with medical costs, quality of care, and access to treatment
Social security : beyond the rhetoric of crisis by Theodore R Marmor( Book )

13 editions published between 1988 and 2017 in English and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What are the possibilities and prospects for Social Security over the decades ahead? The essays in this interdisciplinary study explore what social insurance has meant historically, socially, economically, politically, and legally in the years since the founding of the American social security system in 1935. Questions examined include: Does Social Security have a coherent and defendable ideology? If so, is that ideology adequate to the demands of a contemporary political environment that seems to emphasize the re-privatization of many roles adopted by the modern welfare state? What explains the peculiarly feverish quality of recent Social Security politics--which has been characterized by periodic high anxiety, claims of doom and crisis, and rigid resistance to any alteration, followed by eventual marginal adjustment and continuing uncertainty about the future? Although the authors do not offer answers for all these questions, they convey confidence about the basic structure of American social security and optimism about its future possibilities. Contributors to the work are Robert M. Ball, Robert M. Cover, Michael J. Graetz, Rudolf Klein, Theodore R. Marmor, Jerry L. Mashaw, Michael O'Higgins, Paul Starr, and James Tobin.Originally published in 1988.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

15 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers a timely account of health reform struggles in developed democracies. The editors, leading experts in the field, have brought together a group of distinguished scholars to explore the ambitions and realities of health care regulation, financing, and delivery across countries. These wide-ranging essays cover policy debates and reforms in Canada, Germany, Holland, the United Kingdom, and the United States, as well as separate treatments of some of the most prominent issues confronting policy makers. These include primary care, hospital care, long-term care, pharmaceutical policy, and private health insurance. The authors are attentive throughout to the ways in which cross-national, comparative research may inform national policy debates not only under the Obama administration but across the world."--Jacket
Social insurance : America's neglected heritage and contested future by Theodore R Marmor( Book )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What has America done to protect its citizens from life-changing but common risks such as death of a family breadwinner, ill health, disability, involuntary unemployment, outliving retirement savings, and birth into a poor family? Each, in its own way, burdens-and possibly devastates-unlucky individuals and families both emotionally and financially. It is the rare life that is untouched by one or more of these six threats. How do our current policies affect taxation, spending, and the economy, as well as prospects for individual lives? What more might these policies do to protect Americans? Rich in stories, data, and analysis, Social Insurance by Theodore R. Marmor, Jerry L. Mashaw, and John Pakutka provides a strong intellectual foundation for understanding the history, economics, politics, and philosophy of America's most important social insurance programs. This insightful work provides a unifying vision of these programs' purposes and reminds us, amidst the confusing and often apocalyptic rhetoric, why we have the programs and policies we do, while arguing for reforms that preserve and enhance the protections in place
Social policy and the labour market( Book )

Fads, fallacies and foolishness in medical care management and policy by Theodore R Marmor( Book )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[…] This collection of articles takes up a key set of what the author regards as particularly misleading fads and fashions - developments that produce a startling degree of foolishness in contemporary discussions of how to organize, deliver, finance, pay for and regulate medical care services in modern industrial democracies. The policy fads addressed include the celebration of explicit rationing as a major cost control instrument, the belief in a "basic package" of health insurance benefits to constrain costs, the faith that contemporary cross-national research can deliver a large number of transferable models, and the notion that broadening the definition of what is meant by health will constitute some sort of useful advance in practice.
