December 3, 2016

Andrew Roberts, historian, author, and Visiting Professor at the War Studies Department at King’s College, London, takes issue with America’s broken primary system and the intransigent two-party duopoly, regrettably driven by the politics of “the other.” Roberts reflects on the future of Western civilization and proposes a CANZUK union in the wake of Brexit—comprised of Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom—to strengthen free trade and defense alliances between the Crown countries.

Cancer Care Politics and Treatments

November 26, 2016

Dr. Debra Patt, practicing oncologist and Vice President of Texas Oncology, explains how the well-intentioned federal 340B Drug Discount Program is actually driving up cancer care costs. With preferred vendor hospitals applying their 30-50% drug discounts to all patients, not just the underserved, industry-wide prices are being forced up to subsidize the program. On the whole, however, Patt is optimistic about the diagnostic innovations, therapeutic success, and a drastic drop in cancer mortality rates.
