Taking Ernesto Laclau and...

Chapter
The neoliberal public finance paradigm has come under increased scrutiny for its inequitable distributional impacts. Yet alternative models for fiscal rules, processes and policies capable of counteracting entrenched economic inequity have been slow to emerge. While civil society and intergovernmental initiatives have promoted policy and procedural...
Article
Full-text available
As we confront a dramatic economic breakdown steeped in injustice, it is imperative that we push for a solution that matches the scale of the problem. The confluence of the COVID-19 pandemic, the sudden economic collapse, accelerating inequity and the global climate crisis has created the necessity -- and opened the door -- to radically transform o...
Article
Full-text available
This fact sheet summarizes options for financing universal health care (or Medicare for All) in the United States. Specifically, it analyzes who would be paying the taxes that would replace private premiums and out-of-pocket costs. It concludes that at a time when wealth is transferred upwards at record levels, universal health care would lead to a...
Technical Report
Full-text available
This booklet tells four stories about the future of public finance in 2040. These stories are stylized, simple, and — as far as possible in the fiscal world — a little bit of fun. They are intended to tickle the imagination, inspire ideas, and spark conversations, especially among advocates and practitioners who struggle with fiscal issues in t...
Data

Article
Full-text available
With the passage of Act 48 in May 2011, Vermont has become the first U.S. state to enact a law for a universal, publicly financed health care system. The state is on course for implementing a single payer system by 2017. This first breakthrough in the decades-long struggle for universal health care in the United States — after thwarted or pared dow...
Conference Paper
In extremely rural and frontier areas, poor and low-income residents encounter particular difficulties in accessing the health services they need. Public administrations in sparsely populated counties often lack the capacity to support disadvantaged residents and rely primarily on federal support for community health centers. In Lewis and Clark Cou...
Chapter
Although the crisis of health care in the United States is widely acknowledged - marked by poor health outcomes, high costs, unequal access, and widening health inequities - its structural underpinnings have not been adequately addressed, and reformers have settled on promoting piecemeal measures to avoid disruption. The human right to health care...
Article
Full-text available
This chapter seeks to describe the obligations imposed by the human right to health and how these have been applied to successive health care reform efforts in the United States. It argues that in the United States, these obligations require treating health care as a public good that is financed and administered publicly rather than left to the com...
Conference Paper
The United States does not recognize the human right to health care, and it stands alone among industrialized countries in failing to implement a universal health care system. While reform efforts have followed in close succession, access to care remains restricted, based on factors such as ability to pay, health status, geographical location, race...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper aims to assemble the building blocks for an EU integration policy, based on lessons learned from Member States’ experiences. It focuses not on those migrants who have recently arrived but on those who have settled, and on the second generation. It begins with an analysis of different approaches to integration, discusses the target groups...
Article
Full-text available
From the introduction: Marxist discourses have actively attempted to come to terms with the prevalence of contingencies and the abundance of political practices and identities. This ongoing process has developed into a deconstructive awareness that constitutes a new, postmodern political theory with a strengthened emancipatory force.
Book

Chapter
Anstelle eines strategischen Kompromisses zwischen einer negativ-dekonstruktiven und einer positiven, ethisch politischen Haltung gilt es nunmehr, eine Verschränkung beider Momente, die deren gegenseitige Abhängigkeit offenbart, herbeizuführen. Denn wenn diese Studie zwischen poststrukturalistischen Thesen und emanzipatorischen politischen Ansprüch...
