In this EconEdLink lesson, students review the health systems of the United States and Canada. They identify the positive aspects of each system and look at the trade-offs associated with those positive aspects. Students also recognize that choosing between these two systems requires a trade-off between the goals of economic freedom and economic security. This lesson incorporates an interactive student activity and links to a variety of Web resources.
