The title alone pulls you in – Economic Ideas You Should Forget. Ideas and theories that everyone believes but aren’t true. 71 eminent economists and social scientists from around the world each contributed an economic theory that should be forgotten. Myths debunked include more choice is better, that economic growth increases well-being, and that CEO pay reflects talent and hard work. This book, and the underlying message, should be required reading for all healthcare payment reformers. For more summer reading books, visit the CT Health Policy Project Book Club.
