Share your thoughts on why market-based economics (private competition using supply and demand to reach equilibrium prices) may be inadequate when applied to healthcare in the United States. Some things to consider in drafting your initial post are 1. What do consumers need in order for traditional economics to work for healthcare? 2. How is the “product” of healthcare different than other products? 3. Is buying healthcare similar to buying a car (where supply and demand can be helpful)? Why or why not? 2. Healthcare in general is said to be inelastic when it comes to price elasticity of demand. In other words, if the price of healthcare rises, demand for healthcare does not drop significantly. On the other hand, price elasticity of demand for a particular medical practice or medical product is generally higher — individual medical care is generally said to be elastic. This means that when the price of a particular doctor’s visit, medical procedure, or healthcare product rises, the demand for that doctor, procedure or product drops significantly. Explain this concept using the information on price elasticity of demand (including the following bullet points: The extent to which substitutes are available. If a consumer can easily switch to another good when the price of the original good rises, then the latter will tend to be more elastic. • The proportion of the consumer’s income spent on the good. Naturally, one would be more price sensitive about big budget items, such as housing, than tiny ones, such as chewing gum. Thus, goods that comprise a greater share of one’s budget tend to have higher elasticities. • The time frame in question. Over time, it’s easier for consumers to find substitutes, so long-term elasticities are higher. If the price of gasoline rises, it is hard for consumers to make quick adjustments; gas is price inelastic. Over time, however, persistent high gas prices can lead consumers to lower their demand by buying more fuel-efficient cars, arranging carpools, or using public transportation.   Share this:TwitterFacebook

Frequently asked questions
Is your service confidential?

When you place an order with our company, we ask you to provide us with such personal information as your name, phone number, and email address. We need this data to keep you updated on the important things related to your order or account.

Is there a possibility of plagiarism in my completed order?

We complete each paper from scratch and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check it for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism detection systems that are used by most universities (e.g., we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.

We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness.

Is there a money-back guarantee? If yes, how can I receive a refund?

You can certainly get your money back in several cases. You can receive a full refund if you have paid for your order twice or if you have placed two identical orders. In case your paper was late or the quality of the paper does not correspond to your expectations, you will get compensation for these issues.

Do you keep a database of pre-written essays?

No, we do not have such a database. All papers you order from us are written from scratch. This means your paper is unique and has never been published before—neither will it be published after we deliver it to you.


When will my custom paper be done?

While placing an order with WritersHub, you can choose a period of time within which a paper should be delivered to you. The countdown until the specified deadline starts automatically from the moment we receive your payment in our system. For example, if you pay for your order at 6pm on Monday and choose a 3-day delivery option, you will receive your custom paper by 6pm on Thursday.

Remember that a writer needs a sufficient amount of time in order to conduct thorough research. Therefore, please choose the most suitable deadline when you place an order. Moreover, the later you need your paper to be delivered to you, the cheaper it will be. Thus, you will be able to save your money while your writer will have enough time to work on your order and ensure its quality.

Make sure you upload all the additional materials at the very beginning. If you fail to do that, the deadline for your order will be postponed as well.

I haven’t received my custom paper by the deadline. What should I do?

Let us know immediately about that. You can do it by writing a message on Facebook or email us. Our support manager will carefully examine your order and will assist you with it right away. The reasons for late delivery may vary from time to time. It can happen that you have entered a wrong email address or your spam filter does not allow you to receive emails from us. It is also possible that the writer is waiting for your reply and can not continue working without your assistance, or we are checking the work for plagiarism. Whatever the case may be, contact us if you have any problems with getting your order on time.
