L'éthique médicale peut-elle être indépendante de la politique économique ?

Philippe Abecassis () and Philippe Batifoulier ()

No 2007-21, EconomiX Working Papers from University of Paris Nanterre, EconomiX

Abstract: Health economics often portrays medical ethics as a source of resistance to cost cutting measures within the health system. This paper challenges the opposition by showing that medical ethics is influenced by a welfare state that is in the process of constructing a market in health provision. In this increasingly mercantile context, medical ethics themselves have come to reflect market values.
