This book illustrates how the pursuit of market-driven federal health policy triggers local government failure and a second market failure at the community level. The volume will
• explain and illustrate the second market failure phenomenon experienced in south Los Angeles and triggered by the market-based policy at the federal level and role conflict at the local government level
• report on the impact of market failure on a safety-net institutions, patients, and an underserved community
• discuss the role of a community power vacuum created by shifting demographics and political leadership
• describe lessons learned and a pathway to sustainability through a community health campus approach to urban safety-net health systems

This book introduces the reader to the fundamental and big debates in health policymaking and health care management related to the conflict between efficiency and equity. How can health policymakers and managers be efficient and yet compassionate? The discussion goes beyond traditional health policy and management books by discussing political, economic, and social theoretical foundations of these debates. Further, the book shows the impact of the big debates on real people and real communities and shows a pathway out of the failures it reports. It is an important resource to public health professionals , health managers, clinical leaders and policymakers.
