Freedman Presidential Professor in Economics and professor of The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice, and Carrie Colla, associate professor of The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice, in an article about how job growth in the health care sector is leading to higher costs. "It is unlikely that health care cost growth will moderate without a corresponding moderation in the growth of health care employment," said Skinner and Colla.
