Reducing the Cost of Health Care with Scott W. Atlas: Perspectives on Policy
Broad access to quality health care starts with making it less expensive. In order to lower cost and improve quality, we should not only eliminate harmful regulations but provide consumers with the incentive to consider different costs. Expanding the supply of medical services would also stimulate competition. Effective reform would put patients in charge of their own spending, while giving them a way to gain from paying less.

Strategic Incentives
To create a strategy-supportive system of rewards and incentives, a company must emphasize rewarding people for accomplishing results related to creating value for customers, not for just dutifully performing assigned tasks. A properly designed reward structure is management’s most powerful tool for gaining employee commitment to superior strategy execution and excellent operating results. Focusing jobholders’ attention and energy on what to achieve as opposed to what to do makes the work environment results-oriented. It is important for both organization units and individuals to be properly aligned with strategic priorities and enthusiastically committed to executing strategy. To get employees’ sustained, energetic commitment, management has to be resourceful in designing and using motivational incentives - both monetary and nonmonetary. Financial incentives generally head the list of motivating tools for trying to gain wholehearted employee commitment to good strategy execution and operating excellence. But most successful companies also make extensive use of nonmonetary incentives. Managers must learn how and why the use of well-designed incentives and rewards can be management’s single most powerful tool for promoting operating excellence.

Information and Incentives
What does an increase in the price of oil tell us? What does it signal? And how do we adjust to that signal? The price of oil gives users of oil an incentive to respond — by using less oil or substituting lower-cost alternatives for oil. The key here is that we let people decide how to most effectively allocate the use of goods and resources. To solve the great economic problem, we need to solve information and incentive problems. In this video, we take a look at how Nobel Prize-winner Friedrich Hayek described the price system and its approach to solving the information problem. We’ll also continue with our example of oil to show how the price is equal to the marginal value of oil or the social opportunity cost.

Companies Offering Incentives to Stay Healthy
Some employers in the United States are offering their workers financial incentives to get healthy .. in an effort to reduce health care costs and improve employee productivity. Last year, heath care costs in the U.S. rose at twice the rate of inflation in 2008. As Steve Mort reports from Orlando, Florida, the financial incentives can be an important factor motivating Americans to improve their health.

The Impact of Financial Incentives on Early and Late Adopters among U.S. Hospitals
Objective: To examine how hospitals that volunteered to be under financial incentives for more than a decade as part of the Premier Hospital Quality Incentive Demonstration (early adopters) compared with similar hospitals where these incentives were implemented later under the Hospital Value-Based Purchasing program (late adopters). Design: Observational study. Setting: 1189 hospitals in the USA (214 early adopters and 975 matched late adopters), using Hospital Compare data from 2003 through 2013. Participants: 1 371 364 patients aged 65 years and older, using 100% Medicare claims. Main outcome measures: Clinical process scores and 30 day mortality. Results: Early adopters started from a slightly higher baseline of clinical process scores (92) than late adopters (90). Both groups reached a ceiling (98) a decade later. Starting from a similar baseline, just below 13%, early and late adopters did not have significantly (P=0.25) different mortality trends for conditions targeted by the program (0.05% point difference quarterly) or for conditions not targeted by the program (−0.02% point difference quarterly). Conclusions No evidence that hospitals that have been operating under pay for performance programs for more than a decade had better process scores or lower mortality than other hospitals was found. These findings suggest that even among hospitals that volunteered to participate in pay for performance programs, having additional time is not likely to turn pay for performance programs into a success in the future.

Incentives to sustain forest ecosystem services
Incentives to sustain forest ecosystem services: A review and lessons for REDD Approximately 17 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions are caused by land-use change and, in particular, the destruction of tropical forests. Reducing land-use change and forest degradation has been shown as a cost-effective way of slowing carbon emissions compared to other mitigation strategies such as curbing emissions from power stations. Decisions taken at the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC in Bali, 2007 opened the possibility for reduced emissions from deforestation and degradation (REDD) payments to become part of the post-Kyoto framework agreement, and for short-term pilot projects. Consequently, the governments of many industrialised countries are announcing significant new funds to tackle climate change.

When markets don't provide a good or service efficiently, that's a market failure. When markets fail, often governments step in to provide those services.
