Social Functions And Economic Aspects Of Health Insurance

RRP $174.00

Statistics published by the U. S. Department of Commerce (1980) indicate that in 1977 we spent 8. 1% of our gross national product (GNP) on life, health, property-casualty, and other forms of insurance. An additional 5. 7% was used to pay the Social Security tax, which is another form of insurance premium, for a total of 14. 8% of the GNP. Although insurance had its historical origin in marine insurance, it has now developed into one of the major industries of the American economy and extends into many areas of economic activity. One area where growth has been particularly strong is the medical sector. Health insurance is a major institution in all industrialized countries. It became a government responsibility in 1883 when Bismarck intro- duced a compulsory program of health insurance for industrial workers in Germany. Programs for workers in various industrial and income categories soon followed in other European countries-Austria (1888), Hungary (1891), Norway (1909), Servia (1910), Great Britain (1911), and Russia and Romania (1912) (Rubinow, 1913:250). Programs in these countries were extended in subsequent years, and other countries in Europe followed with their own programs. Consequently, today most industrial countries have universal or near-universal health insurance coverage. In the United States the issue of national health insurance has been seriously debated since just prior to World War I, and polling data since the 1930s show that a substantial majority of the public has been supportive of such a program (Erskine, 1975).

Causes And Consequences Of Nuclear Proliferation

RRP $457.99

This edited volume offers a systematic account of the process of nuclear proliferation and its consequences, using quantitative research methods.The real-world importance of nuclear weapons has led to the production of a voluminous scholarly literature on nuclear proliferation. Missing from this debate is an analysis of how states acquire nuclear weapons and a systematic empirical examination of how nuclear weapons may affect the security and the diplomacy of their possessors. The chapters in this book address these twin deficits by focusing on the causes and consequences of nuclear proliferation. We aim to accelerate the development of an empirical research agenda by employing robust research methods. Quantitative studies have been underrepresented in the expansive nuclear proliferation literature, which was historically dominated by comparative, historical, and qualitative analyses of the spread of nuclear weapons and nuclear deterrence. The volume brings together a new generation of scholars, advancing novel theoretical positions, and performing quantitative tests.This volume makes theoretical, empirical, and methodological contributions to the field by centering on two observations. First, whether states want nuclear weapons is irrelevant if they are unable to acquire them. The basic argument, grounded in the tradition of realist and security-based approaches to nuclear proliferation and nuclear deterrence, is that nuclear weapons on average and across a broad variety of indicators enhance the security and diplomatic influence of their possessors. Because states stand to gain by possessing nuclear weapons, the supply-side factors that enable nuclear development are among the most important determinants of nuclear proliferation. Second, nuclear weapons can potentially have a wide variety of effects on their possessors. Nuclear weapons may alter the frequency, timing, intensity, duration, and outcome of conflicts and may also affect a state's diplomatic influence.This book will be of much interest to students of arms control and nuclear proliferation, war and conflict studies, security studies and IR.
