Description

An expert on health policy and health care finance, Daniel P. Kessler’s recent research examines how tax policy affects medical spending. His research interests also include empirical studies in antitrust law and law and economics scholarship. He is co-author (with John Cogan and R. Glenn Hubbard) of "Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise: Five Steps to a Better Health Care System," which proposes market-based health care reform. He is also investigating how vertical integration and other shared ownership structures in markets for health services affect the cost and quality of care.
