      Dr. Hough is also an author, his most recent book Irrationality in Health Care: What Behavioral Economics Reveals About What We Do and Why, looks at the state of American health care through the lens of behavioral economics and encourages patients, physicians, and policy makers to take a harder look at our actions and reactions so we can make better choices for our health and well-being.

      Doug earned an MS and PhD in Economics from the University of Wisconsin. His research interests are in identifying the optimal size and structure of a physician practice, and in the application of the emerging field of behavioral economics to contemporary health care issues.
