The proposition that health care can and should be made to function like a "normal" market sector has had great impact on health policy debates in Western nations in the last three/ four decades and the main strategic embodiment of that proposition has been managed competition, which envisions consumers, providers, and payers linked by market forces that are disciplined by firm "pro-competitive" public regulations. Amid vigorous debate, different societies have made different choices about whether and how far to pursue this strategy. The seminar will explore some political considerations that may help to explain why some societies have embraced managed competition fully, others have approached it cautiously and sitill others have found it lacking in appeal.
