Capitol Comment 215 - Do Rail Mergers Mean Higher Rates?

The railroad industry has undergone a large number of mergers since 1981, which has raised fears of monopolization. Some economists and most politicians equate the number of competitors or degree of industry concentration with the robustness of competition. They reason that, as mergers leave more shippers served by only one railroad, surely higher rail rates must follow.

Capitol Comment 214 - Railroad Competitive Access: Re-Regulation in Cheap Clothing

By most measures, railroad deregulation under the Staggers Act of 1980 has been a resounding success. The Staggers Act lowered real rail rates on most commodities by 15 percent to 25 percent, saved shippers $11 billion to 18 billion annually due to lower rates and more timely service, and staved off a massive taxpayer bailout of an industry that was a financial basket case.1

Capitol Comment 186 - The FDA Should Come Clean: Consumers Have a Right to Know How Long the FDA Hid Psyllium’s Ability to Fight

Coronary heart disease (CHD) is America’s number one killer, causing or contributing to more than 750,000 deaths each year. Over half of American adults have borderline or high cholesterol levels, which contribute to CHD. Studies have shown that certain types of fiber (as part of a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet) can help lower one’s cholesterol levels and therefore reduce one’s risk of heart disease.

Capitol Comment 154 - FDA User Fees Have Done Nothing for Patients

Summary: The FDA and the pharmaceutical industry are lobbying Congress heavily to reauthorize the 1992 Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA). Rather than bow to the will of industry or government bureaucrats, Congress should do what is best for patients: reform the FDA and give user fees the study they deserve.

Capitol Comment 157 - The Case Against OPIC

"I cannot see any redeeming aspect in the existence of OPIC. It is special interest legislation of the worst kind, legislation that makes the problem it is intended to deal with worse rather than better ... OPIC has no business existing." -- Nobel laureate Milton Friedman September 5, 1996

Capitol Comment 150 - The FDA's Party Patrol

For every Food and Drug Administration employee who approves life-saving new drugs for patient use, there are more than two FDA employees who scour the countryside looking for regulatory violations. These regulatory cops may or may not do anything to help patients, but some of them have found a new professional interest: bar hopping.
