Rosemary Gibson and Janardan Prasad Singh weave two hotly-debated issues in American political and economic life: the Medicare program and its future, which is up for grabs, and the growing influence of the healthcare industry, Wall Street investment firms, private equity firms, and hedge funds that are cashing in on the business of Medicare. Medicare Meltdown reveals what the ties that bind Wall Street and Washington mean for Medicare’s future and for boomers who will depend on it.
