T.R. Reid talked about his book, The Healing of America: A Global Quest for Better, Cheaper, and Fairer Health Care (The Penguin Press; August 20, 2009). The former Washington Post reporter traveled to a variety of countries, including France, Germany, Japan, India, Canada, and the United Kingdom, for a first hand look at their health care systems. He also looks at the moral question of the right to equal health care notwithstanding ability to pay.

Reid is also the author of Confucius Lives Next Door: What Living in the East Teaches Us About Living in the West; The United States of Europe: The New Superpower and the End of American Supremacy; and The Chip : How Two Americans Invented the Microchip and Launched a Revolution During his years with the Washington Post, his jobs included bureau chief in Tokyo and London. close
