Investigator:   James S. House

Main Project

For my first and main project, I would hope to complete a book manuscript tentatively titled: Beyond Sicko and Health Care Reform: Social Determinants and Disparities in Health and America?s Paradoxical Crisis of Health and Health Care. The book is oriented toward social and biomedical scientists and policymakers and sophisticated lay persons. Its central thesis is that the United States can ultimately resolve its current paradoxical crisis of health and health care (i.e., increasingly spending more than any nation in the world for health care and insurance, while increasingly having levels of population health below all but the poorest OECD countries and a number of less developed nations as well) by moving from policies and attempts at reform that focus on controlling the supply of health care (i.e., the utilization and cost, and to some degree its quality) toward policies and attempts at reform that focus on improving population health, mainly by means beyond health care, and hence reducing the need and demand for, utilization of, and expenditures on health care.
