(Columbia University Press, 2017)
 
Two books by Distinguished Professor Michael Grossman (Economics) have just been published:

Determinants of Health: An Economic Perspective, a collection of Grossman’s most important papers, adds additional essential background and depth to his work on economic determinants of public health. Each of the book’s four sections includes an introduction that contextualizes the issues and addresses the larger stakes of his work. An afterword discusses the significance of Grossman’s approach for subsequent research on health economics, as well as the work others have done to advance and extend his innovative perspective.  

The Demand for Health: A Theoretical and Empirical Investigation, a seminal work in health economics first published in 1972, introduced a new theoretical model for determining the health status of the population. Grossman’s work uniquely synthesized economic and public health knowledge and has catalyzed a vastly influential body of health economics literature. Michael Grossman is a distinguished professor of economics at the Graduate Center.


Determinants of Health: An Economic Perspective is available for purchase in hardcover or in electronic format.

The Demand for Health: A Theoretical and Empirical Investigation, a monograph, is available for purchase in hardcover, paperback, and electronic formats.
