Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the performance of government and market-oriented reforms by comparing three policy areas—health care, education, and transportation—in order to detect recurring patterns and outcomes. Health care, education, and transportation deserve close attention because they are important and costly “human services” and have preoccupied market reformers. The chapter outlines distinctive features of three policy areas and analyzes their similar developmental patterns as market-oriented reforms were hatched and introduced.

Keywords: government reform; market-oriented reforms; health care policies; education policies; transportation policies
