After the needless death of his father, business executive David Goldhill began a personal exploration of a health care industry that for years has delivered poor service and irregular quality at astonishingly high cost. In Catastrophic Care, Goldhill shows the U.S. health care sector is not worth preserving in anything like its current form — and President Obama’s health care law is likely to exacerbate its failings. Goldhill proposes a different and radical solution to these agonizing problems.
