Uncle Sam, M.D.
AEI Scholars on Health Care and Pharmaceutical Reform

  • Title:

    Uncle Sam, M.D.

Health care reform is once again at the center of national debate, and AEI scholars continue to inform that debate through an ambitious program of publications, conferences, and consultations with political and industry leaders. This collection of essays provides an indication of the range and depth of AEI’s work in health care reform and pharmaceutical policy. AEI has analyzed issues and concerns critical to the future of America’s health system, spanning subjects as varied as Medicare and Medicaid reform, health coverage for the uninsured, the role of the FDA, the effects of price controls on pharmaceutical R&D, drug reimportation, global health and drug provision, and the role of private sector solutions to public health problems. AEI’s Health Policy Studies program is one of the most active centers at AEI, providing the intellectual and practical underpinnings for current health care debates.

Calfee
  • Economist John E. Calfee (1941-2011) studied the pharmaceutical industry and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), along with the economics of tobacco, tort liability, and patents. He previously worked at the Federal Trade Commission's Bureau of Economics. He had also taught marketing and consumer behavior at the business schools of the University of Maryland at College Park and Boston University. While Mr. Calfee's writings are mostly on pharmaceutical markets and FDA regulation, his academic articles and opinion pieces covered a variety of topics, from patent law and tort liability to advertising and consumer information. His books include Prices, Markets, and the Pharmaceutical Revolution (AEI Press, 2000) and Biotechnology and the Patent System (AEI Press, 2007). Mr. Calfee wrote regularly for AEI's Health Policy Outlook series. He testified before Congress and federal agencies on various topics, including alcohol advertising; biodefense vaccine research; international drug prices; and FDA oversight of drug safety.
