A polemical novel about the creeping influence of government in people’s lives.


The claustrophobic setting for The Dutch Institute presents a political elite who use the state health care system for their own good. People are led to believe that the mandatory basic package gives good health care for everyone. This is not true. The powerful state institutes are good for providing top jobs for ex-politicians, but bad for patients and employment. Hopefully this book will help in managing change.

The Dutch Institute reveals the truth of the petty-minded horse trading that goes on behind closed doors in the Netherlands’ most hallowed workplace: the corridors of the State administration that house those who wield power over health care. The Dutch Institute is holding democracy hostage.

"The Dutch Institute is an unusual and engaging novel. Despite its imperfections, it should appeal to fans of the thriller genre, and also to readers interested in the controversial aspects of healthcare policy."
