ZITNER: About half of government program spending is on health care. Yet, no one knows if citizens are getting value for money or if the current approach creates more harm than good. The health authority can tell you it spent billions it cannot tell how many people were better or worse after care or harmed by waiting. http://www.aims.ca/commentary/resolve-health-care-controversies/

The AIMS Platform for Nova Scotia identifies three main challenges with the present state of affairs in the province:

- a sense of disenfranchisement and lack of accountability
- anemic economic growth
- unsustainable spending habits

To combat these challenges, AIMS recommends a growth-oriented policy regime, based on a better tax and regulatory model to replace government-centred economic development. AIMS advocates for incentives to create new businesses and jobs, and for greater immigrant attraction and retention. http://www.aims.ca/books-papers/platform-nova-scotia/
