Health Care Under the Knife: Moving Beyond Capitalism for Our Health

These days, our health and well-being are sorted through an ever-expanding, profit-seeking financial complex that monitors, controls, and commodifies our very existence. Howard Waitzkin talks about all this in his book, Health Care Under the Knife, in which he and other noted health-care professionals, scholars, and activists have written down their inside knowledge of the medical system: what’s wrong, how it got this way, and what we can do to heal it.
