Health insurance has re-emerged as a topic in the presidential campaign ahead of the next round of Democratic debates next week in Detroit, with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris among candidates who have made recent proposals. Scott Adams, a professor and chair of the economics department at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, can provide context and analysis on issues related to health care and insurance. Adams served as a senior economist on the Council of Economic Advisers under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. Health care economics is a field of interest for Adams, and one of his current research projects looks at worker preferences for employer-provided health insurance.
