Alan Sager, PhD is a professor of health law, policy, and management at the Boston University School of Public Health, where he has taught since 1983. In 1979, he designed a “time banking” method of mobilizing voluntary aid for disabled citizens by creating a parallel economy of good deeds. He suggests that lower prescription drug prices and higher volumes could affordably finance needed medications for all Americans while spurring drug makers to innovate.
