Biosimilars Bring Much-Needed Competition to Drug Markets

The high cost of medical care is one of the issues that most directly affect individuals and families. Historically, high initial investments in capital and a strict regulatory regime have effectively limited competition in many sectors of the medical industry. But thanks to advances in technology and a changing regulatory environment, some of that is starting to change.

Sorry, Bernie Sanders, FDR's New Deal Actually Prolonged the Great Depression

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) gave a highly anticipated speech at Georgetown University on Thursday, where he extolled socialism. The Democratic presidential candidate, whose proposed an estimated $18 trillion in new spending over the next decade, invoked President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the New Deal in his effort to sell his message to college students.

The IRS's Plan to Chill Charitable Giving

Don’t you love donating to causes you believe in? Don’t you love that warm fuzzy feeling from knowing that contributing to a worthy cause? And don’t you especially love that you can support whatever organization you choose anonymously? That last one is especially important given the news over the last few years that the IRS has been targeting conservatives with audits and denial of tax-free status for nakedly political reasons. Well, if the IRS has their way, this may be a luxury that will soon go the way of the dinosaur. A new rule is proposing that non-profit organizations collect the “tax identification numbers” of all their donors who give over $250. For you and me, that means our Social Security numbers.

Internet Freedom Notches Another Victory in ITC Court Case

Last week, a federal appeals court delivered an important decision regarding the transmission and regulation of digital data that enters the country. In the 2-1 ruling, the court concluded that the International Trade Commission (ITC) does not have the authority to assume control over the flow of electronic transmissions, which could have introduced yet another regulatory blockade to stifle internet freedom.

The FDA Wants to Tell Us What Words Mean

The FDA is proposing a new regulation to define, and potentially ban, the use of the word “natural” in food packaging. Historically, there has been no official definition of the term, meaning that food companies can include the word on anything they like. It’s a marketing tool, rather than a genuine description of nutritional content.

What the Trans-Pacific Partnership Gets Wrong about Intellectual Property

With the final text of all 30 chapters of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) finally available, there is a lot to scrutinize. Chapters on environmental and labor standards are sure to get a lot of attention, but there is one chapter in particular that should be of concern to those concerned with innovation and freedom of expression: the chapter on intellectual property.

Steep Tariffs to Come in December

This Christmas, American exporters could be getting something a lot worse than coal in their stockings: a series of steep new tariffs on goods sold in Canada and Mexico. Following a ruling by the World Trade Organization (WTO) that the United States' "country of origin labeling" (COOL) laws unfairly discriminate against our neighbor nations, Canada and Mexico have been authorized to impose new tariffs totaling up to $3 billion on U.S. exports, starting on December 18th of this year.

Beer Lovers Despair. ObamaCare to Squeeze Out Small Brewers

Ever since home brewing was legalized in the late 1970s, the craft beer industry has become one of America's most vibrant examples of entrepreneurship and small business. It doesn't take much more than some barley, some hops, and a dream to start your own private microbrewery, and if you're good at it, you could become a nationally recognized brand.

Socialist Sanders Criticizes "Unregulated" Uber but Uses It on Campaign Stops

In a recent interview with Bloomberg, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) hinted that he has "serious problems" with Uber, the popular app-based ridesharing service, and called it "unregulated." Though it is no secret that Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, loathes free market capitalism, his comments are strange considering that his campaign exclusively uses Uber to get around at stops on the campaign trail, according to the National Journal.

Obama’s New Climate Goals Could Have Significant Economic Cost

Later this month, a number of nations, including the U.S., will descend upon Paris, France for a week and a half to discuss global efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference will take place from November 30th to December 11th, and while most of the event will be used to discuss new ways to mitigate the effects of global climate change, President Obama will be gearing up to discuss the new additions to his climate plan. However, while the commander-in-chief is hoping that a bold climate agenda will spur other nations to take on or continue their own ambitious climate initiatives, the potential economic repercussions may create more of a dissuasive tone; especially for developing industrial nations such as China.
