    It has long been recognized that most standard of living increases are associated with advances in technology, not the accumulation of capital.

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 26.99

    The health-care system in the United States is by far the most expensive in the world, yet its outcomes are decidedly mediocre in comparison to those of other countries.
