Courtesy code a model

In an article entitled, ‘New Zealanders’ code would help health debate’, Ron Eachus for the Oregon-based publication Statesman Journal ponders why this country, with its “way of treating people with respect … and common courtesy, untainted by attempts to take advantage of someone, fear of lawsuits or making that extra buck,” could teach the US something about itself, and the state of it health care reforms. Offering examples of New Zealand “kindness”, Eachus wonders if in the US he’d be treated to the same. “‘No worries mate’ means not turning differences into diatribes, not letting the little things get in the way and not turning your back on others in need. If only we could apply the same principles to health care reform. But that’s politics and that’s another side of life on another side of the planet.”
