Abundant literature is available on the spectrum of issues relevant to pharmaceutical policy---including regulation, pricing, financing, reimbursement, procurement, and distribution. What has been lacking is a practitioner's guide for navigating this complex field while considering the various challenges and limitations that characterize political reality. This book meets that need.There is no "one-size-fits-all" approach to pharmaceutical policy. Even two countries with similar objectives may need to apply different sets of policies, depending on their starting positions, preexisting laws and

Laws are the whitewash that governments use to disguise the ugly fact that they steal money from productive people, then use it to control how they live their lives. Being merely one-sided contracts, laws have no moral validity whatsoever; but eight generations of government schooling have conned Americans into supposing that they are magic, to be held in respect and awe. Accordingly, if there is a tax law, most people tend to obey it. In this masterpiece, perhaps the most important book he ever wrote, Irwin Schiff shows that there is no such thing; how even that veneer of respectability fa

Over the years, many countries have approached the World Health Organization for advice or information on the feasibility of measures to control the growth of expenditure on medicines. Such calls for help led the Organization to undertake a study as early as 1983. The report "Drugs and Money" was widely used and repeatedly updated. This edition aims to provide policy makers and regulators with a compact and practical review of the various approaches that have been developed and tested to date in an effort to contain the overall costs of pharmaceutical services and drug treatment.

This 2010 edition of OECD’s periodic review of China’s economy finds that China’s spectacular expansion has continued in recent years, making for impressive improvements in living standards. The slowdown associated with the global financial and economic crisis was contained by massive fiscal and monetary policy stimulus, which has boosted domestic demand. This survey includes chapters on recent achievements and prospects, monetary policy, financial reforms, product market regulation and competition, inequality, the labour market, old-age security and the health care system.
