In the Media: Sean Flynn’s Research on Healthcare Costs Highlighted in Wall Street Journal

A Wall Street Journal op-ed on healthcare costs featured Department of Economics Chair and Associate Professor of Economics Sean Flynn’s research on Singapore’s healthcare model and its applicability to United States. The op-ed states that “the combination of transparency and financial incentives has led to price and quality competition so intense that health-care costs are 75% lower in Singapore than in the U.S.,” citing Flynn’s recent article about his research in MarketWatch. Flynn’s book on Singapore’s healthcare model, The Cure That Works, was published last year.
