Extract

Our article in the October 13, 1997, issue of the ARCHIVES1 could be construed as "managed care bashing," since we attacked one widely discussed managed care practice (gag clauses) and directed attention to a less-publicized but equally important ethical infringement (trade secrets or proprietary information clauses). Apparently, however, this was not enough criticism of the business practices of managed care organizations for Himmelstein and Woolhandler,2 who would have wished us to attack every vestige of the marketplace in health care, and to whom "business ethics" appears to be an oxymoron.
