Abstract

In this paper we state that health economics is now amongst the leaders in a «paradigm shift» in economics that needs to spread as quickly as possible into the rest of the subject. This conclusion is obtained from considering that economics can be applied to topics that do not appear superficially to be economic topics such as what is the best treatment for a national health service to offer to a patient with a particular disease.
