Advances in medical technology have been identified as a major driver of increases in health care costs, but increases in managed care activity may alter the incentives associated with the acquisition of new technologies and with their use. Baker and Phibbs discuss mechanisms by which managed care could influence the adoption of new technologies. They also empirically examine the relationship between HMO market share and the diffusion of neonatal intensive care, a collection of technologies for the care of high-risk newborns. They find that managed care slowed the adoption of midlevel neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) but did not influence the adoption of the most advanced units. Slowing the adoption of midlevel units should have generated savings and also could have benefited patients, because health outcomes for seriously ill newborns are better in higher-level NICUs and reductions in the availability of midlevel units appear to increase the chance of receiving care in a high-level center. Thus, in this case slowing the adoption of a new technology may unambiguously improve welfare.
Using pooled cross-sectional data from the 1962-3, 1983, 1989, 1992, and 1995 Surveys of Consumer Finance and panel data from TIAA-CREF, Ameriks and Zeldes examine the relationship between age and portfolio choice and especially between age and the fraction of wealth held in the stock market. They illustrate and discuss the importance of the well-known identification problem that prevents unrestricted estimation of age, time, and cohort effects in longitudinal data. Ameriks and Zeldes also document three important features of household portfolio behavior: significant nonstock ownership, wide-ranging heterogeneity in allocation choices, and the infrequency of active portfolio allocation changes. By including age and time effects (but excluding cohort effects), they show that equity ownership has a hump-shaped pattern with age, while equity shares conditional on ownership are nearly constant across age groups. Including age and cohort effects (but excluding time effects) shows that equity portfolio shares increase strongly with age. Following the same individuals over time, the authors find that almost half of the sample members made no active changes to their portfolio allocations over the nine-year sample period; the vast majority of those who did make changes increased their allocations to equity as they aged.
Berndt, Busch, and Frank compare three major approaches to constructing price indexes for the treatment of depression: the methods used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS); an approach based on episodes of treatment which uses adherence to treatment guidelines as an indicator of outcome; and an episodes-based approach that incorporates information on expected treatment outcomes from the literature and expert clinical opinion. Their findings highlight the differences in results produced using the episodes-and outcome-based methods versus the service-based approach of the BLS. The BLS method shows a rising price index for depression treatment between 1991 and 1996 while the episodes-based approaches show a declining price index for treatment of depression.
This chapter analyses the two pillars of the Unified Approach and the Global Anti-Base Erosion Proposals in the light of alternative policy choices which were available to the OECD. These major alternative policy choices include destination-based cash-flow taxation, residual profit allocation by income, formulary apportionment and expanding the concept of permanent establishment. In each case these policies are explained and the advantages and disadvantages of the major policy discussed. Each policy is then analysed to see what it has contributed to the 2020s compromise and what further contribution it might make to international tax reform in the future.What emerges from this analysis is that key elements of the reform owe much to the destination basis of taxation present in the various alternative reform options and selectively adopted in particular by the Unified Approach in Pillar One.
