Money-Driven Medicine

This Friday, August 28, Bill Moyers Journal will preview excerpts from "MONEY-DRIVEN MEDICINE," the powerful new documentary on the medical-industrial complex, produced by Academy Award-winner Alex Gibney ("Taxi to the Dark Side";  "Enron: The Smart Guys in the Room") and now available on DVD from California Newsreel ("UNNATURAL CAUSES").

MONEY-DRIVEN MEDICINE helps dispel the myths about what’s really driving the cost and quality of American health care.  Bill Moyers said, "MONEY-DRIVEN MEDICINE is one of the strongest documentaries I have seen in years and could not be more timely.  The more people who see and talk about it, the more likely we are to get serious and true health care reform."

Moyers’ August 28th program (check local PBS listings) will be devoted to the film, which is based on Maggie Mahar’s acclaimed book, "Money-Driven Medicine: Why Health Care Costs So Much (Harprer/Collins).
