These gentlemen write an excellent book, but due to shortcomings on the financial/economic end, they sadly don't fully grasp what MUST be grasped to understand the status quo: the banksters and their lackeys make tremendous profit from the status quo (especially in America and the UK) which is namely ignoring the two greatest cost drivers in healthcare - - the private equity/leveraged buyouts across the entire healthcare sector, and the hedge funds' speculation across the entire healthcare sector - - until these external cost drivers of the private health insurance sector are both recognized and understood, we will never make any progress!

This book was cited and profiled by Dr. Richard Wolff in his weekly program, Economic Update, which can be heard via the WBAI.org website, here: http://wbai.org/server-archive.html
