Riassunto: Left on the sidelines as stepchild of the health care debate has been America's enormous success in inventing and producing innovative medical technology that has saved lives and improved the quality of care for millions of people in the United States and around the world. By overemphasizing what's wrong with the current health care system, the White House and Congress threaten to harm what's right with it--our world-leading talent for inventing and constantly improving medical techniques and treatments.The results of this comprehensive report undertaken by the Competitiveness Center of Hudson Institute illustrate the threat posed to this industry's heath--and to our health--by unwise reforms that would increase government control of the U.S. health care system. This book details the successes of, and challenges facing, innovative and effective American industry, underscoring the predicament it would face under various reform scenarios, particularly those featuring a uniform benefits package, price controls, and new burdens on the acquisitions of equipment.
