Reforming America's Health Care System

Health policy experts from the United States, Canada, and Western Europe discuss both what to expect from the recent health reform legislation and alternatives that should still be considered.

Rugged Individualism

The authors look at the political context in which American rugged individualism flourishes or declines and offer a balanced assessment of its future prospects. They outline its path from its founding—marked by the Declaration of Independence&mdash:to today and look with some optimism toward new frontiers of the twenty-first century that may nourish rugged individualism. In considering reasons to be pessimistic as well as reasons to be optimistic about it, they also suggest where supporters of rugged individualism might focus greater encouragement and resources.
