Abundant literature is available on the spectrum of issues relevant to pharmaceutical policy---including regulation, pricing, financing, reimbursement, procurement, and distribution. What has been lacking is a practitioner's guide for navigating this complex field while considering the various challenges and limitations that characterize political reality. This book meets that need.There is no "one-size-fits-all" approach to pharmaceutical policy. Even two countries with similar objectives may need to apply different sets of policies, depending on their starting positions, preexisting laws and

This 2010 edition of OECD’s periodic review of China’s economy finds that China’s spectacular expansion has continued in recent years, making for impressive improvements in living standards. The slowdown associated with the global financial and economic crisis was contained by massive fiscal and monetary policy stimulus, which has boosted domestic demand. This survey includes chapters on recent achievements and prospects, monetary policy, financial reforms, product market regulation and competition, inequality, the labour market, old-age security and the health care system.

Review: Hayek uses flawless logic to prove that Keynesian economics, which is touted today as our own modern monetary policy, is inflationary economics. The end result of this application can only be a situation which is worse than the one it was intended to remedy. Hayek proves that individuals acting independently are unable to provide the consistent statistical information necessary on which to base an ordered economy.

The Law School and the Wharton Financial Institution Center (FIC) at the University of Pennsylvania organized the conference “Is U.S. Government Debt Different?” in Philadelphia on May 4 and 5, 2012. The event, which was financed by a Sloan Foundation grant to the FIC, was conceived against the background of skyrocketing U.S. government debt, the standoff over the statutory debt limit between the Congress and the President of the United States in the summer of 2011, and the ongoing debt crisis in the Eurozone. This confluence of shocks and near-misses raised the urgent need to cons
