A Comparison of Public Policies
Canada and the United States have similar social programs and, as a result, small differences between the two countries offer opportunities for unique insights. In October 2016, 25 years after the NBER produced the book, Small Differences that Matter: Labor Markets and Income Maintenance in Canada and the United States, the NBER hosted a conference revisiting the two labor markets from a comparative perspective. This summary presents findings from researchers on topics such as disability insurance, income mobility, and the returns to human capital.
