Comparing the systems of campaign finance in place in these three countries will give insight into the strengths and weaknesses of each. There are problems with the current system of financing campaigns in the United States and solutions must be found. From the research gathered through comparison of these three countries prescriptions can be made towards solving the problems of the current system in place.
