What’s the Most Important Fact About the Heathcare Crisis? That We Already Know the Cure! 

Whole Foods Markets, the State of Indiana, and innovators around the world have used forgotten American ideas to slash healthcare costs by 75 percent while simultaneously delivering true universal access, coverage for preexisting conditions, and an ironclad safety net. 

Economics for Dummies author Sean Flynn explains that simple things—like price tags, competition, and plentiful health savings contributions—crush costs while granting everyone equal access to the world’s best healthcare services.  

Praise For The Cure That Works: How to Have the World's Best Healthcare -- at a Quarter of the Price

"Sean Masaki Flynn is a member of two endangered species: sane Republicans who care about getting good policy and economists who can explain things. His take on the mess that is American healthcare financing is clear, coherent and—I think—largely correct." 
— Brad DeLong

"This is a must-read book for anyone who wants to solve the problems with the American health system."
— Deborah Freund

"The Cure that Works presents thoroughly tested and documented reforms that can work here in the United States.  Sean Flynn outlines the missing links that can provide every American with the highest quality healthcare outcomes."
— Vidar Jorgensen
