Stop Demonizing China: Senior Fellow Ivan Eland on KTRS Radio’s Larry Conners USA Program
Recorded: Tuesday, February 2, 2016

Presidential candidate Donald Trump and the New York Times have recently demonized China for its relationship with Iran, but Sr. Fellow Ivan Eland cautions against such rhetoric. Economically, China is not much of a threat, says Eland. China’s thirst for oil might actually help drive down the price of oil. Criticizing China for human rights violations usually leads to a backlash that harms dissidents. China’s territorial claims in the South China Seas are too far away for the US to be concerned about, says Eland. China is often seen as the evil enemy some politicians in the US need to appear as if they are strong candidates.

The Case for Selling Your Organs: Research Fellow Abigail R. Hall interviewed on Minnesota Public Radio
Recorded: Monday, December 21, 2015

Research Fellow Abigail R. Hall recently wrote an Op-Ed in Forbes about the solution to the growing need for organ transplants: allowing the sale of human organs. Hall rebuts critics who say only poor people would sell their organs, or the practice is morally objectionable. On the contrary, she says. By legalizing the sale of organs, thousands of lives could be saved and desperate, long waits for organ donations would ease.

Senior Fellow Benjamin Powell is Interviewed on American Medicine Today Radio on Drug Approvals and the FDA
Recorded: Saturday, December 12, 2015

What is the cost of the long approval process for potentially life-saving drugs by the FDA? The approval process can take up to 12 years and cost $1 billion. But there are other costs. Patients aren’t able to take drugs that aren’t approved and they might die or become more ill. Another cost is that a potential drug maker might not want to take the financial risk of taking a drug to market. Powell recommends testing drugs but possibly making drugs "FDA recommended", rather than "FDA approved." What’s needed is competition and markets to help patients and entrepreneurs, says Powell.

Recorded: Sunday, December 6, 2015

Senior Fellow John C. Goodman, author of A Better Choice is interviewed about Texas Congressman Pete Sessions’ proposed alternative to Obamacare. It’s legislation that will fix problems with the healthcare system that the Affordable Care Act failed to do. Instead of subsidies, everyone—regardless of income—will be treated equally. Under the proposed plan, which Goodman is helping to craft, the healthcare marketplace will be utilized to lower costs to consumers, with government playing a minimal role.
