quoting Charles Blahousvia Star Tribune
Thursday, November 7, 2019
Sen. Elizabeth Warren's plan to pay for "Medicare for All" without raising taxes on the middle class departs from how the U.S. has traditionally financed bedrock social insurance programs. That might impact its political viability now and in the future.

Commentary: Trump And Sanders Both Wrong On Drug Re-Importation

quoting Richard A. Epsteinvia Chestnut Hill Local
Friday, November 1, 2019

Is government-facilitated reimportation of prescription medicines from Canada, a policy now supported by politicians as diverse as President Donald Trump and Senator Bernard Sanders, an issue of free trade or a backdoor method of imposing price controls? That’s the way the question is usually framed in policy debates, but the great Nobel prize-winning economist Milton Friedman took a third view.

The Government Should Get Out Of Drug Prices

quoting Richard A. Epsteinvia The Minnesota Republic
Saturday, November 2, 2019

It doesn’t take a political science expert to inform the public that our nation is in a period of intense polarization and political strife. It seems that every issue is partisan and that no solution is achievable for an array of topics affecting the American people. However, there seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel.

The new numbers say 40% of American adults are obese, and 18% of children are too — staggering figures, to say the least.
