Work, Worklessness, and the Political Economy of Health

Clare Bambra

Oxford University Press

This concluding chapter summarizes the evidence on health inequalities presented in the previous chapters, and then develops a model of the political economy of health inequalities to show how different types of public policy interventions can mitigate health inequalities. It applies the model to the case of work and worklessness, and argues that politics matter in the aetiology of health inequalities.
