Abstract

The dialogue links a portrait of health reform politics in the US from the seventies to 2008 by Ted Marmor with a comparable, parallel essay by Antonia Maioni about Canada's struggles. The pairing is also unusual in having the North Americans comment on each other's portrayal. They do not disagree so much with the descriptions as with how those facts appear and what they mean when looking comparatively.

Keywords: Politics, Health Reform, Comparative Policy Analysis
