Overview

As the United States heads into the 21st century, health care and social security reform are inevitable, and this reform will take place in a context of extreme budget constraint and potential intergenerational conflict. Although Canada also faces the need for policy reform under budgetary pressure, the absence of intergenerational conflict in the public debate is conspicuous. This book is an in-depth look both at the policies and politics governing the economic security debate in the United States and at differences and similarities between U.S. and Canadian experience and outlook. Important for a book on a subject of such wide interest as policy toward the elderly, the contributors write in a manner that facilitates cross-disciplinary use. Contributors include Morris Barer and coauthors, Margaret Battin, Robert Binstock, Fay Cook and coauthors, Robert and Rosalie Kane, Paul Pierson and Miriam Smith, John Miles and Jill Quadagno, Marilyn Moon and Patricia Ruggles, Carolyn Weaver, and Michael Wolfson and Brian Murphy.
