"As we enter a new era in the fight for universal healthcare in America, Professor Friedman's book distills the failures of our current system - and the complexities of what should replace it - into a compelling and easy-to-understand explainer for anyone looking to understand Medicare for All. This is a must-read for anyone who wants to go beyond the headlines to get a nuanced account of the politics and policy behind Medicare for All."
Jim McGovern, Congressman for the 2nd District of Massachusetts
"We need a clear, concise analysis of universal Medicare in all its forms that cuts through the complexities, and that is what Professor Friedman has given us. As he shows, sixty-five million of us already enjoy its benefits in the U.S., an eloquent demonstration of its superiority in cost and efficiency to the private competition."
Michael Dukakis, Former Governor of Massachusetts and Democratic Party Presidential Nominee 1988
"Professor Friedman is one of the leading thinkers in the country on the economics that underpin universal healthcare coverage. His visionary work in The Case for Medicare for All is just what our country needs right now. The inequities in our current healthcare system are glaring and inexcusable, and I'm grateful to have Professor Friedman's important and timely research in order to better understand how Massachusetts can transition from our current health care system to a single payer system."
Joanne M. Comerford, Massachussetts State Senator and former Campaign Director at MoveOn
"Economics Professor Gerald Friedman has devoted his career to defending Medicare for All. In this convincing book, he explains his reasoning and why America would be transformed for the better."
Walter Tsou, University of Pennsylvania
