Most industrialized countries face health problems similar to those of the United States, such as changing demographics and ever-increasing costs. Many have health outcomes equal or superior to the United States while spending substantially less on health care.

Reid, examines how other nations accomplish this and asks what lessons the United States could learn to improve its own health care finance and delivery.
