This is the introductory article in an issue of Seminars devoted to the economics of nephrology. The authors categorize the relevant questions as legacy issues, those of the past decade, and those anticipated in the next decade. Their objective is to ground the discussion in its pertinent history and to help frame the policy choices that Congress, the Administration, the nephrology community, and the public will confront in the next few years.
