The Ethical Implications of Health Spending: Death and Other Expensive Conditions

Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics 39 (2):121-129 (2011)
The cost of health care in the United States has important generational considerations whether analyzed at a point in time, or over many years. The budgets of governments contain important information about the funding of public services, including health care, and the intra- and inter-generational implications of both the inherent tradeoffs, and the particular means of funding the services. End-of-life expenditures, while a significant component of the cost of health care, are not the primary consideration in the ethical or moral questions raised
