|About the Book|
For decades, the provision of free health care has been a crowning achievement of the Canadian political system. But, as in the U.S., the system is under pressure. Healing Medicare offers clear-headed options for socially-conscious health care reform in both countries. Harvard-trained economist Michael Decter investigates successful reforms, liberating technological applications and provides a concise, incisive comparison of the pros and cons of Canadian and American systems. Healing Medicare contains practical advice and direct advocacy for constructive reform -- a rewarding read for anyone with an interest in the future of health care in North America.
