How Wall Street and Washington Are Ruining Medicare and How to Fix It
Gibson, Rosemary, 1956- (Book - 2013 )
Medicare Meltdown

Item Details

Baker & Taylor
Discusses the future of Medicare in the United States, focusing on the growing influence of the healthcare industry, Wall Street investment firms, and hedge funds that are cashing in on the business of Medicare.

Rosemary Gibson and Janardan Prasad Singh weave two hotly-debated issues in American political and economic life: the Medicare program and its future, which is up for grabs, and the growing influence of the healthcare industry, Wall Street investment firms, private equity firms, and hedge funds that are cashing in on the business of Medicare. Medicare Meltdown reveals what the ties that bind Wall Street and Washington mean for Medicare’s future and for boomers who will depend on it.
