"Four in five Americans say the U.S. health-care system needs 'fundamental' change. Can the U.S. learn anything from the rest of the world about how to run a health-care system, or are these nations so culturally different from us that their solutions would simply not be acceptable to Americans? FRONTLINE correspondent T.R. Reid examines first-hand how other advanced capitalist democracies - the United Kingdom, Japan, Germany, Taiwan and Switzerland - deliver healthcare, and what the United States might learn from their successes and failures"--Container
Congressional odyssey : the saga of a Senate bill by T. R Reid( Book )

6 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in English and held by 842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Washington Post reporter T.R. Reid takes a candid look at Washington personalities and politics, revealing the motives and strategies, the cooperation and rivalry, the honesty and the deceit behind a seemingly minor piece of legislation. He traces the course of S.790--the Inland Waterways Bill--from its inception to its eventual passage, a process with as many twists and subplots as a novel, and with characters just as vivid. In Congressional Odyssey: The Saga of a Senate Bill you will discover: -a cast of main characters including Jimmy Carter, Edward Kennedy, Walter Mondale, Hamilton Jordan, Howard Baker, Tip O'Neill, Russel Long, and other key political figures -a covert alliance between the railroad lobby and environmentalists, masked by a money-laundering scheme -the White House in-fighting triggered by the bill, leading to the ouster of Brock Adams during President Carter's cabinet shakeup -Carter's problems with the Congressional leadership, exacerbated by his support of the Inland Waterways Bill authored by Republican Senator Pete Domenici -"know-who" lawyers, who get things done through their connections rather than their legal abilities -the Alton, Illinois, Lock and Dam 26 project that earned Senator Proxmire's first "Golden Fleece Award" for wasting tax dollars -the thoughts and feelings of the dozens of central personalities who talked with surprising frankness to T.R. Reid Congressional Odyssey: The Saga of a Senate Bill makes fascinating reading for anyone interested in the people and the power struggles in the public eye, and behind closed doors, on Capitol Hill and in the White House
A fine mess : a global quest for a simpler, fairer, and more efficient tax system by T. R Reid( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. tax code is a total write-off. Crammed with loopholes and special interest provisions, it works for no one except tax lawyers, accountants, and huge corporations. Not for the first time, we have reached a breaking point-- in fact, we reach one every thirty-two years. T.R. Reid crisscrosses the globe in search of exact solutions to the urgent tax problems of the United States. With an uncanny knack for making a complex subjects not just accessible but gripping, he investigates what makes good taxation (no, that's not an oxymoron) and brings that knowledge home where it is needed most. Reid presses the case for sensible root-and-branch reforms that will affect everyone. Doing our taxes will never be America's favorite pastime, but it can and should be so much easier and fairer. --

U.S. health care : the good news by T. R Reid( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The United States is the only industrialized democracy that doesn't provide health care for all its citizens. Of course, we'd like to cover all of the 50 million uninsured, but how would you pay for it? In fact, we could. The consensus among health policy experts is that Americans pour enough money into health care--a $2.6 trillion industry--to have universal coverage."--Container
A fine mess : a global quest for a simpler, fairer, and more efficient tax system by T. R Reid( )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. tax code is a total write-off. Crammed with loopholes and special interest provisions, it works for no one except tax lawyers, accountants, and huge corporations. Not for the first time, we have reached a breaking point. That happened in 1922, and again in 1954, and again in 1986. In other words, every thirty-two years. Which means that the next complete overhaul is due in 2018. But what should be in this new tax code' Can we make the U.S. tax system simpler, fairer, and more efficient' Yes, yes, and yes. Can we cut tax rates and still bring in more revenue' Yes. Other rich countries, from Estonia to New Zealand to the UK-advanced, high-tech, free-market democracies-have all devised tax regimes that are equitable, effective, and easy on the taxpayer. But the United States has languished. So byzantine are the current statutes that, by our government's own estimates, Americans spend six billion hours and $10 billion every year preparing and filing their taxes. In the Netherlands that task takes a mere fifteen minutes! Successful American companies like Apple, Caterpillar, and Google effectively pay no tax at all in some instances because of loopholes that allow them to move profits offshore. Indeed, the dysfunctional tax system has become a major cause of economic inequality. In A Fine Mess, T. R. Reid crisscrosses the globe in search of the exact solutions to these urgent problems. With an uncanny knack for making a complex subject not just accessible but gripping, he investigates what makes good taxation (no, that's not an oxymoron) and brings that knowledge home where it is needed most. Never talking down or reflexively siding with either wing of politics, T. R. Reid presses the case for sensible root-and-branch reforms with a companionable ebullience. This affects everyone. Doing our taxes will never be America's favorite pastime, but it can and should be so much easier and fairer
The United States of Europe : the new superpower and the end of American supremacy by T. R Reid( Recording )

2 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Don't look now, but the old, fragmented Europe has given way to a European Union made up of twenty-five nations and 450 million citizens. It has more people, more wealth, and more votes on every international body than the United States. It eschews military force but offers guaranteed health care and free university educations. And the new "United States of Europe" is determined to be a superpower. Tracing the EU's emergence from the ruins of World War II and its influence everywhere from international courts to supermarket shelves, [the author] explores the challenge it poses to American political and economic supremacy.-Back cover

Second opinion with T.R. Reid : Inside Ayurvedic medicine( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When his American doctor suggested shoulder replacement surgery, veteran reporter T. R. Reid decided to investigate other options. This program documents his three-week stay at a clinic in southern India dedicated to the ancient practice of Ayurveda, a form of Hindu medicine. Reid's treatment involves astrology, entreaties to the Hindu god of healing, and a seemingly bizarre regimen of massages, mudpacks, brews, and caustic eyedrops-all with the goal of realigning his body's doshas, a concept roughly similar to the classical and medieval "humors." Although the patient initially wavers between skepticism and nonchalance, he ultimately discovers some improvement, along with insights about faith, the placebo effect, and the limits of Western science
