In Priceless, Dr. John Goodman takes the Affordable Care Act to task, rejects the Obama Administration’s vision, and offers a no-nonsense approach to health care reform. Arguing that the United States should create a market for sick people, in which health plans vigorously compete to solve the problems of diabetics, asthmatics, heart patients, cancer patients, and others with high expected health care costs, he maintains that every example of a center of excellence – producing high-quality, low-cost care – originated from the supply side of the market, not the demand side. With practical advice on how typical employers can cut employee health costs in half, Dr. Goodman also examines a variety of health-related topics, including malpractice, insurance reform, and the institution of a privatized Medicare program.

John C. Goodman, Ph.D. is President and Founder of the National Center for Policy Analysis, where is a Kellye Wright Fellow in Health Care. He also serves as a Research Fellow at the Independent Institute. He is the author of more than 50 studies on health policy, retirement reform, and tax issues, as well as nine books, including Leaving Women Behind: Modern Families, Outdated Laws; Lives at Risk: Single Payer National Health Insurance Around the World; and The Patient Power: Solving America's Health Care Crisis. His articles have been featured in publications such as Health Affairs, National Review, and The Wall Street Journal
