Remedy and reaction : the peculiar American struggle over health care reform by Paul Starr( Book )

19 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 1,526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In no other country has health care served as such a volatile flashpoint of ideological conflict. America has endured a century of rancorous debate on health insurance, and despite the passage of legislation in 2010, the battle is not yet over. This book is a history of how and why the United States became so stubbornly different in health care, presented by an expert with unsurpassed knowledge of the issues. Tracing health care reform from its beginnings to its current uncertain prospects, Paul Starr argues that the United States ensnared itself in a trap through policies that satisfied enough of the public and so enriched the health care industry as to make the system difficult to change. He reveals the inside story of the rise and fall of the Clinton health plan in the early 1990s -- and of the Gingrich counterrevolution that followed. And he explains the curious tale of how Mitt Romney's reforms in Massachusetts became a model for Democrats and then follows both the passage of those reforms under Obama and the explosive reaction they elicited from conservatives

The limits of privatization by Paul Starr( Book )

4 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Transferring public services and public assets to private ownership is not an entirely new idea. Governments at all levels in the United States have for years contracted out many services. However, under the recently coined label "privatization," such policies now come recommended as a more comprehensive approach to the problems of modern government than ever before. However, the choice is not public or private but which of many possible mixed public-private structures works best. The advocates of privatization use the more moderate ideas to gain plausibility for the more radical goal of government disengagement. The conservatives' view of government as an economic black hole misses what government adds to the productive resources of society and overstates what government takes away. There is a lesson about privatization: governments will continue to be held accountable for economic growth and security. Thus, most privatization efforts would be politically unpopular. The most common privatization proposals would hardly diminish the domain of special interests. Advocates of privatization show an undue tenderness toward private contractors and an undue hostility toward public employees. Although privatization aims to shift services from the public to the private sector, it could end up making private institutions more like public ones. Finally, where the government represents the nation and seeks to speak with one voice, it needs public servants loyal to its highest interests, not private contractors maximizing their own. Although privatization is appealing, the ever-changing public-private mix is necessary in providing public services. (Includes 29 reference notes.) (Kc)

Total removal of rougheye rockfish from BC coastal waters by the commercial fleet from 1971 to 2005 equals approximately 16 million fish
