What women want when they need medical treatment
Shoshana Neuman, Einat Neuman, 11 January 2008
The average percentage of GDP spent on health in OECD countries rose from 6.9% in 1960 to 8.8% in 2003. The health literature attributes this increase to three major factors (i) an increase in life expectancy; (ii) the use of advanced expensive diagnosis and treatment tools and methods; and (iii) a change in public demand and expectations, due to rising living standards.
How experience affects our preferences for the health service we receive
Shoshana Neuman, Einat Neuman, 18 December 2007
The standard assumption in economic theory is that our preferences do not change as a result of experience. The reality, however, may be somewhat different. The authors of CEPR DP6608 examine whether and how preferences for the service they receive differ for women having their first child compared to those with experience of childbirth.
