Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary, etc.: In 'Valuing Health' Daniel M. Hausman provides a philosophically sophisticated overview of generic health measurement that suggests improvements in standard methods and proposes a radical alternative. He shows how to avoid relying on surveys and instead evaluate health states directly. Hausman goes on to tackle the deep problems of evaluation, offering an account of fundamental evaluation that does not presuppose the assignment of values to the properties andconsequences of alternatives.
