Rand Paul grilled Dr. Anthony Fauci</a> on royalty payments government scientists receive from private third-party entities. The non-profit watchdog,  <a href="https://www.openthebooks.com/">Open the Books</a> has been relentlessly investigating these private royalty payments because the public has been drastically impacted by public health guidance.  Adam Andrezejewski, CEO and founder of Open the Books, says it is important to understand how government health agencies make their decisions when decision makers have personal wealth gains on the line. He believes the payments over the past ten years come close to $400 million.  <a href="https://heartlanddailynews.com/2022/04/fauci-hints-at-retirement-while-legacy-on-the-hotseat/">Fauci announced he is retiring from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in December</a>, but Andrezejewski believes he will still have much influence in the loop between regulators and pharma.</p> <p>Open the Books has been investigating Fauci and the NIH regarding his salary and retirement package as well as the hundreds of media appearances during the pandemic. Now the group, through FOIA is trying to get the names, amounts and payers of royalty payments government scientist get from private companies if their research is eventually licensed by a private company.</p> <p>Discussed during the 20-minute podcast:</p> <p>1.  Should this be a bi-partisan concern?</p> <p>2.  What about Fauci’s point that guidance, vaccine approval came from non-NIH agencies?</p> <p>3. Why Open the Books got interested in probing royalty payments</p> <p>4. How the payments work. Shouldn’t these royalty payments go back to taxpayers for funding the salaries of the researchers? (Federal law allows the payments)</p> <p>5. How forthcoming has NIH been on document requests?</p> <p>6. Does Fauci get royalty payments?  Where will Fauci go after he retires from NIH in December?

They discuss how the Congress of Vienna planted the seeds for today's international order, how new conceptions of the politics between states were the work not only of European statesmen but also of politically ambitious aristocrats and bourgeoisie, and how the leading statesmen of the age operated in the context of social networks often presided over by influential women who had their ear.</p> <p><strong>Get the book here:</strong>  <a href="https://press.princeton.edu/books/hardcover/9780691208213/the-invention-of-international-order">https://press.princeton.edu/books/hardcover/9780691208213/the-invention-of-international-order</a></p> <p><strong>Show Notes</strong>:</p> <p><em>Lapham’s Quarterly</em>: Glenda Sluga – “Only That I Were an Official Person!”<br/> <a href="https://www.laphamsquarterly.org/roundtable/only-i-were-official-person">https://www.laphamsquarterly.org/roundtable/only-i-were-official-person</a></p> <p>London School of Economics: Glenda Sluga – “The invention of an international order: Lessons from 1814”<br/> <a href="https://blogs.lse.ac.uk/europpblog/2022/02/01/the-invention-of-an-international-order-lessons-from-1814/">https://blogs.lse.ac.uk/europpblog/2022/02/01/the-invention-of-an-international-order-lessons-from-1814/</a></p> <em>Times Literary Supplement</em>: Biancamaria Fontana – “A Europe of free peoples”<br/> <a href="https://www.the-tls.co.uk/articles/the-invention-of-international-order-glenda-sluga-book-review-biancamaria-fontana/">https://www.the-tls.co.uk/articles/the-invention-of-international-order-glenda-sluga-book-review-biancamaria-fontana/</a> What the U.S. Can Really Do to Bring Down the Costs of Biotech Drugs (Guest: Gregg Girvan) https://www.heartland.org/multimedia/podcasts/what-the-us-can-really-do-to-bring-down-the-costs-of-biotech-drugs-guest-gregg-girvan Health Care Tue, 06 Sep 2022 12:00:00 GMT https://www.heartland.org/sebin/d/s/HCN_Greg_Girvan.mp3 00:44:47 no <p>Americans have a right to complain that some prescription drugs are unaffordable. But the answer is not to have the government (taxpayers) pick up more of the tab. A better solution is to get costly regulatory obstacles out of the way.  Gregg Girvan, a scholar at The Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity (FREOPP), says it is a myth that brand name drugs have to be excessively priced to guarantee future research and development.  He also says regulatory obstacles are standing in the way of making biosimilars, a cheaper alternative to biologic drugs, more available.  Europe outpaces the U.S. in allowing biosimilars to be more widely available.  All Americans should be pushing for reform before health care spending pushes out other spending even more than it does today.</p> <p>Ninety percent of all prescription drugs sold are generic.  Generic drugs are replicas of small molecule drugs (the drugs commonly taken in tablet form) and are cheap and affordable.  They have been revolutionary in driving down drug spending.</p> <p>Biologic or biotech drugs are the cutting-edge drugs that account for most drug spending and are used by a small percentage of consumers.  Yet, there is no to few cheaper alternatives to these drugs due to regulatory obstacles and “patent padding” that can and are giving drug makers monopoly markets for decades.</p> <p> In the interview, Gregg and AnneMarie discuss:</p> <p>- Evidence that high drug prices don’t necessarily guarantee more research and development. </p> <p>- What are biologic drugs are and why are prices for so high?  Do they cost more to research and produce?</p> <p>- Do biosimilars do the same thing as their biologic counterparts?</p> <p>- State of biosimilar market in the U.S.</p> <p>- How is the biosimilar market in Europe different and why?</p> <p>- Biosimilar Council’s efforts to change the thinking of consumers, pharmacists</p> <p>- Interchangeability/concerns with the pharmacies</p> <p>- Why we ALL should be pushing for these reforms</p> <p>Girvan and Avik Roy have produced a growing body of articles and papers here: <a href="https://freopp.org/">https://freopp.org/</a></p> <p>The Growing Power of Biotech Monopolies Threatens Affordable Care, Sept. 15, 2020: <a href="https://freopp.org/the-growing-power-of-biotech-monopolies-threatens-affordable-care-e75e36fa1529">https://freopp.org/the-growing-power-of-biotech-monopolies-threatens-affordable-care-e75e36fa1529</a></p> <p>The Fair Care Act of 2020:  Market Based Universal Coverage: <a href="https://freopp.org/the-fair-care-act-of-2020-market-based-universal-coverage-cc4caa4125ae">https://freopp.org/the-fair-care-act-of-2020-market-based-universal-coverage-cc4caa4125ae</a></p> <p>Drug Companies are Warning that Pricing Reform Spells Doom.

While the plan aims to replace these vehicles with an electric option, the ITT crew questions whether this is part of a larger plan to completely destroy the idea of a personal automobile.

This isn’t the truth. Inflation is going away because government money infusion is over. Inflation is always a monetary problem of too much money chasing too few goods. The COVID lockdown saw the greatest infusion of money in the shortest time in the history of the world at a time when the economy that was shut down. That spending is over and the economy is turning out goods and services again, so the cause of the inflation has ended. Neither the inflation reduction act nor the Federal Reserve raising interest rates is responsible for the waning inflation, but they could bring it back.</p> CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky Calls for Overhaul of the Agency (Guest: Dr. Marilyn Singleton) https://www.heartland.org/multimedia/podcasts/cdc-director-dr-rochelle-walensky-calls-for-overhaul-of-the-agency-guest-dr-marilyn-singleton Health Care Mon, 22 Aug 2022 12:00:00 GMT https://www.heartland.org/sebin/n/h/HCN_Aug22_Singleton.mp3 00:19:42 no <p>On August 17, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, recently stated that the CDC needs a complete overhaul. How serious is her call? As director, can she fix all that is wrong with the agency? Or, is this something Congress needs to address?</p> <p>Our guest for today’s episode of Health Care News is Dr. Marilyn Singleton. Dr. Singleton previously served as president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. She’s also written and spoken extensively on how the CDC and other government health agencies politicized COVID-19. She says that at the very least, it’s time for an independent investigation of the CDC.</p> <p>During an interview, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky made comments on the state of the agency. Dr. Walensky said the CDC is facing three problems: unclear communication, a fragmented public health system, and action reactively, not proactively.</p> <p>Dr. Walensky made these comments as the agency is facing increasing criticism over its handling of COVID-19. The CDC has received criticism for delving into issues beyond its mission such as critical race theory, climate change, transgender medical treatments for children, and teens.</p> <p>Singleton discusses whether Walensky has called for a complete overhaul to take heat off the agency right before the midterm election. Singleton discusses her paper, “<a href="https://heartlanddailynews.com/2021/09/elite-class-weaponized-covid-19-to-transform-america-analysis/">COVID-19: A Weapon to Fundamentally Transform America</a>,” which highlights the CDC’s other mistakes related to COVID: diagnostic testing, flip-flopping guidance, and early treatment.</p> <p>Dr. Singleton’s work can be found at her website <a href="https://marilynsingletonmdjd.com/">https://marilynsingletonmdjd.com</a>.</p> 359. Why Does The Left Reject Nuclear Power https://www.heartland.org/multimedia/podcasts/359-why-does-the-left-reject-nuclear-power Taxes Fri, 19 Aug 2022 10:00:00 GMT https://www.heartland.org/sebin/j/b/ITTe359.mp3 02:06:32 no <p>The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Justin Haskins, and Chris Talgo present episode 359 of the In The Tank Podcast. The Inflation Reduction Act was signed into law. Like the ITT crew discussed in previous episodes, it has nothing to do with inflation and everything to do with transitioning our country to unreliable energy. They ask the question “Why does the left reject Nuclear power?” Also, the World Economic Forum, the biggest advocates of The Great Reset, seem to be scared of us. The ITT crew speculates as to why that is.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>OPENING CHIT CHAT</strong></p> <p><strong>The Globe and Mail - How ‘own nothing and be happy’ sparked a misinformation campaign that targeted the World Economic Forum</strong><br /> <a href="https://www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/article-world-economic-forum-misinformation/">https://www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/article-world-economic-forum-misinformation/</a></p> <p><strong>WEF - Welcome to 2030: I own nothing, have no privacy and life has never been better</strong><br /> <a href="https://web.archive.org/web/20200919081413/https:/www.weforum.org/agenda/2016/11/shopping-i-can-t-really-remember-what-that-is?utm_content=buffer60978&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer">https://web.archive.org/web/20200919081413/https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2016/11/shopping-i-can-t-really-remember-what-that-is?utm_content=buffer60978&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer</a></p> <p><strong>WEF - The solution to online abuse?

Rather, Earth’s climate is consistently changing across a variety of timescales. It has been warmer and cooler than it is today. There is no evidence we are in the midst of a climate crisis driven by carbon dioxide emissions. Earth’s present warming is similar to the warming experienced during every previous interglacial cycle throughout its history. Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant.
