A country's health care system should offer affordable medical care to its citizens. The ability of the system to fulfill this mandate is dependent on financing. The system of finance includes revenue going into the health care system and money going out to reimburse health care providers. The source of the polarizing debates on the efficiency of a health care system often centers on the reimbursement of funds to service providers. Service providers in the United States charge exorbitant fees for medical services. In other countries like Canada and the United Kingdom, the cost of treating patients is much lower than in the United States.

obtain my college degree. I do not think that the result pursuing higher education is reprehensible but it is concerning. I am a Christian and I feel that my world view should not be primarily cultural but Christian. I feel that a distorted world view is a tool of the devil and can move souls from righteousness to darkness. The Bible says But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you Matt 6:33 (King James Version). I desire that the lens that I look through would be one that god is pleased with. Jesus Christ has perfect understanding and knowledge and I can put my trust in Him.
In conclusion I feel the greatest lesson I have learned is that all lenses are contained in the lens of scripture. The more emphasis I put on my spiritual well being as a Christian the better equipped I am to understand the world and my place in the world.

The Monroe Doctrine was a policy pursued by the United States in the 19th Century, aiming to expel European powers from the Americas and replace the power vacuum with its own paternalistic power. Unlike the Middle Kingdom tributary system, the Monroe Doctrine acknowledged the existence of the power and influence of other states, and was willing to go to war to expel those states from the American sphere of influence. Within its sphere the United States was the unrivalled regional hegemon and used a ‘carrot and stick’ approach to exert control over other states. Outside its sphere, though, the United States
