Vassar College President Elizabeth H. Bradley talks about the book she co-authored with Lauren A. Taylor entitled, The American Health Care Paradox: Why Spending More is Getting Us Less, published by Public Affairs Press in 2013. "In The American Health Care Paradox, Bradley and Taylor illuminate how narrow definitions of 'health care,' archaic divisions in the distribution of health and social services, and our allergy to government programs combine to create needless suffering in individual lives, even as health care spending continues to soar. They show us how and why the US health care 'system' developed as it did; examine the constraints on, and possibilities for, reform; and profile inspiring new initiatives from around the world."
