Few of us need convincing that American health insurance needs reform. But many of the existing proposals focus on expanding one relatively successful piece of the system or building in piecemeal additions. In her 2023 book We’ve Got You Covered: Rebooting American Health Care, Professor Amy Finkelstein and her co-author Liran Einav marshal original research, insights from American history, and comparative analyses of systems around the world to make a case for a full overhaul of the health insurance system. In her talk, Professor Finkelstein will describe the insights presented in her book. 

Amy Finkelstein is the John & Jennie S. MacDonald Professor of Economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She received the John Bates Clark Medal for her contributions to economics. She is a MacArthur “Genius” fellow, and a member of the National Academy of Sciences.
