Economic Analysis for Management and Policy by Steven Jan

Book Description

As issues of resource scarcity become more explicitly acknowledged in the health sector, public health practitioners are recognizing that economics can form a vital part of their professional toolkit. Economic analysis provides a way of thinking about problems in which the issues of resource scarcity, opportunity cost and broader social objectives such as efficiency and equity can be explicitly taken into account. However, while economics can certainly play an important role in policy and management, its application is often complicated. This book discusses theoretical perspectives in health economics by developing an appreciation of how economic concepts and techniques can be applied in policy making and management in the health sector. The book examines: Demand analysis; Markets and competition; Regulation; Contracts; and Equity in health care. Series Editors: Rosalind Plowman and Nicki Thorogood.

Memetics of Music by Steven Jan Memetics of Music, Hardback (August 2007)

Presents a musicologically-orientated attempt systematically to apply the theory of memetics to music. In contrast to the two points of view normally adopted in music theory and analysis - namely those of the listener and the composer - this book's purpose is to argue for a distinct and illuminating third perspective.
