The normative theory of SHI asks for the efficiency and equity reasons for introducing and maintaining such a compulsory institution in a market economy, for the optimal design of these systems, and for the regulation necessary to attain competition in this market. The positive branch tries to explain why SHI exists in most democracies and why certain characteristic features are often observed.</dcterms:abstract> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:issued>2014</dcterms:issued> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2015-10-30T10:58:20Z</dc:date> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2015-10-30T10:58:20Z</dcterms:available> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
