2018 Year in Review

About PRI

We champion freedom, opportunity, and personal responsibility for all individuals by advancing free-market policy solutions. Since its founding in 1979, PRI has remained steadfast to the vision of a free and civil society where individuals can achieve their full potential. Put simply, public policy is too important to be left just to the experts. Individuals are the real decision makers when it comes to their schools, health care, and environment. PRI reinforces this ideal by providing you with the information, inspiration, and opportunity to make decisions about the daily issues that matter most to you.

A Letter from the President

2018 was a year of great accomplishment for PRI. 

Throughout the year, the ideas put forward by PRI’s scholars inspired positive changes in policies related to health care, K-12 education, the economy, energy and the environment, and issues of concern to Californians.  However, free-market principles all over the country came under sharp attack with the rise of so-called “Democratic socialism.”

 

PRI’s Center for Health Care was a national leading voice educating the American people about the dangers of single-payer health care or Medicare for All—the latest name for single payer.  Encounter Books released in March 2018 my latest Broadside, The False Promise of Single-Payer Health Care, which offers a thorough examination of single-payer systems in Canada and the United Kingdom and uses real stories to debunk myths promulgated by progressives about the benefits of “Medicare for All.”  

 

In 2020, Encounter will also publish my new paperback book False Premise, False Promise: The Disastrous Reality of Medicare for All, an even more comprehensive look at a complete takeover by government of our health care system.  This would mean that all private coverage would be outlawed.  The book will also include profiles of patients who have suffered under single-payer systems in Canada and the U.K. These systems result in long waits for care, rationed care, doctor shortages, and higher and new taxes to pay for the system. Health care is looking to be the major domestic policy issue in the 2020 presidential election. I am writing this book to counter progressives’ arguments touting a complete government takeover of our health care system. The American people need to be educated on the realities of such a system.

 

I traveled the country giving speeches, and meeting with policymakers and legislators to discuss solutions to our health care issues. As well, I participated in several high-profile debates with leading opponents of market-based health care reform.

 

Throughout the year, I published my regular columns in Forbes.com, the Washington Examiner, and Investor’s Business Daily – in addition to commentaries and appearances in media outlets nationwide. In April, I was pleased to receive an honorary doctoral degree from Pepperdine University in recognition of my leadership in health care policy. I also delivered the 2018 commencement address to the graduates of Pepperdine’s School of Public Policy, which aired nationally on C-Span.

 

Additionally, PRI’s Center for Health Care published numerous reports and briefings promoting free-market health care policies.  Among them were studies calling for the repeal of the medical device tax, changes to fix the broken Medicare competitive bidding process, and reforms to open the biosimilars market.

 

In September, PRI welcomed Dr. Henry Miller as a Senior Fellow in Health Care. Over the course of his career, most recently at Stanford’s Hoover Institution, Henry has conducted vital research on junk science, genetic engineering, GMOs, and emerging viral diseases. At PRI, he is continuing his important research and writing on a broad spectrum of scientific and medical issues.

 

PRI’s Center for Business and Economics published the latest in the Beyond the New Normal series showing how strong economic growth can become a reality again through market-based policies. In “The 15 Percent Solution: Defining the Affordable Level of Government,” our Senior Fellow Dr. Wayne Winegarden determined that Congress can maximize growth by limiting spending to an optimal level – 15 percent of national income.

 

PRI’s Center for Education published Lance Izumi’s latest book, An American Education Agenda. It offers 15 federal, state, and local policy reforms to improve America’s current education system and expand school choice options. The book was released with a special policy briefing at the State Capitol in Sacramento, held in conjunction with PRI’s celebration of National School Choice Week in January. Lance also delivered a speech to the Liberty Forum of Silicon Valley on An American Education Agenda and his 2017 book The Corrupt Classroom, which was broadcast nationwide on C-Span.  

 

PRI’s Center for the Environment published two groundbreaking studies in 2018, each of which drew statewide and national media attention.  In “Costly Subsidies for the Rich,” Dr. Wayne Winegarden analyzed the impact of government funded electric car subsidies. His research found that 79 percent of subsidies were claimed by those making more than $100,000 per year. Citing Wayne’s research, there is a renewed effort in Congress to eliminate these giveaways to the wealthy.

 

In “Legislating Energy Poverty,” Wayne explores how big-government energy policies adopted in California and New York increase the energy burdens of those living in poor, rural, and minority communities.  

 

PRI’s Center for California Reform released the latest in its “California Ideas in Action” policy briefs in January.  In “Good Intentions,” Center for California Reform Fellow Kerry Jackson argues that California policymakers should reform government anti-poverty programs to remove incentives against work while embracing private charities and expanding job opportunities in the state’s poorest communities.  

 

An op-ed by Kerry in the Los Angeles Times on poverty in California received national attention in the Drudge Report and other national publications.  Kerry also published regular commentaries in California publications exploring the state’s major fiscal and social challenges.

 

On pension reform, PRI filed an amicus brief in Cal Fire v. CalPERS – one of two major court cases concerning aspects of the 2013 pension reform law and its efforts to curb benefit increases. In March 2019, a state appellate court upheld the Legislature’s repeal of a law granting public employees the opportunity to purchase additional service credit, or unearned service credit.  Additionally, PRI released a new pension chartbook by Dr. Wayne Winegarden showing that – using a more honest accounting method – the state’s public pension crisis had grown to nearly $1 trillion.

 

Online, PRI scholars published daily free-market commentaries on our “Right by the Bay” blog. A highlight was the new “Free Markets 101” column by PRI Fellow in Business and Economics Damon Dunn, where he regularly makes free market economics more relatable to our everyday lives.  

PRI’s weekly “Next Round” podcast featured interviews with scholars, national and state policymakers, and media voices exploring free-market ideas.  Notable guests included George Gilder, Michael Anton, Andrew Puzder, State Senate Republican Leader Patricia Bates, former Assembly Republican Leader Connie Conway, and Democratic Strategist Steven Maviglio.

 

PRI’s work is especially important in these challenging and turbulent times, as strong, free-market voices like ours are needed to combat the growing popularity of socialism and to inspire policymakers to enact free-market solutions to the many problems facing our state and nation.

 

In 2019, PRI celebrates its 40th anniversary. Thanks to your generous support, we will continue to lead the fight to restore the core American principles of opportunity for all, individual liberty, and free enterprise to the Golden State and the nation in 2019 and beyond.

PRI proposes market-based policy reforms that would provide greater access to care, improve quality, and increase affordability. PRI reveals the failure of a single-payer government-run model for health care, drawing particularly on the problems with the Canadian system.

PRI’s President and CEO Sally Pipes published The False Promise of Single-Payer Health Care, an Encounter Books Broadside exploring the many problems with single-payer in countries around the world and giving American patients a preview of what they could face if Medicare for All becomes law.  Pipes continued her bi-weekly columns for Forbes, Investor’s Business Daily and The Washington Examiner’s “Beltway Confidential” blog and was interviewed for dozens of radio and television programs and print and digital publications.  In April 2018, she received an honorary doctoral degree from Pepperdine University in recognition of her leadership in health care policy.

 

PRI’s Dr. Wayne Winegarden authored several new studies, papers, and op-eds, and gave numerous media interviews promoting policies that support the continued viability and vitality of the U.S. biomedical and pharmaceutical industries, to the benefit of patients and overall economic growth.  

 

In September 2018, PRI welcomed nationally-renowned scholar and researcher and former Hoover Institution fellow Dr. Henry Miller as a Senior Fellow at the Center for Health Care. Over the course of his career, Dr. Miller has conducted vital research on complex issues like genetic engineering and emerging viral diseases.

 

In April, PRI released the results of a survey of business executives in industries highly desired by California legislators (clean tech, R&D, manufacturing, and other industries), exploring why they aren’t moving to California despite offers of subsidies and favorable government policies.  The executives cited high costs of housing and real estate, the state’s poor-quality education system, and the expensive costs to do business here as the primary reasons why they are not locating or expanding in the Golden State.

Dr. Wayne Winegarden released Reforming Public-Sector Pensions to Improve California’s Fiscal Outlook—a report and chartbook that uses data from OpenTheBooks.com to demonstrate that California’s public pensions are even more lavish than originally thought. California’s pension debt is nearly $1 trillion – and just 28 percent funded. 

center for education

The Center for Education works to restore to all parents the basic right to choose the best educational opportunities for their children. Through research and grassroots outreach, our scholars advance parental choice in education, high academic standards, charter schools, digital learning, teacher quality, and school finance reform.

An American Education Agenda:
Top 15 Recommendations for Improving K-12 Education

by Lance Izumi,

January 2018.

Lance Izumi released An American Education Agenda: Top 15 Recommendations for Improving K-12 Education – a book that offers guidelines to reconstruct America’s current education system and expand school choice options nationwide. The publication contains policy recommendations that would empower parents by enabling them to make the best possible choice for their child’s education.

 

As part of PRI’s celebration of National School Choice Week, Izumi spoke about An American Education Agenda at an event in January at the State Capitol in Sacramento. He discussed the importance of school choice and charter schools in providing the college preparation students need to succeed in higher education.

 

Izumi’s writings on a wide variety of education issues, such as school choice, Common Core national education standards, and universal preschool, have appeared in major national and California publications.  His speech to the Liberty Forum of Silicon Valley in Mountain View, California on The Corrupt Classroom and An American Education Agenda was broadcast nationally on C-SPAN.

center for business and economics

The Center for Business and Economics examines how the entrepreneurial spirit, the engine of economic growth and opportunity, is stifled by onerous taxes, regulations, and health care policies. Its scholars recommend comprehensive public policy reforms that will maintain a robust economy, ensure consumer choice, and spur creativity and innovation.

“Breaking Down Barriers:  How Occupational Licensing Reform Can Improve the Insurance Markets, Benefit Consumers, and Expand Job Opportunities,” by Dr. Wayne Winegarden, January 2018

“Breaking Down Barriers” (animated video to accompany study), February 2018.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Beyond the New Normal:  How Much Should We Spend?, “The 15 Percent Solution:  Defining the Affordable Level of Government,” by Dr. Wayne Winegarden, May 2018.

“How Much Should We Spend?” (animated video to accompany “The 15 Percent Solution” study), May 2018.

PRI’s Center for Business and Economics continued its work exploring how America’s entrepreneurial spirit, the engine of economic growth and opportunity, is stifled by onerous taxes, regulations, and other government intrusion.

 

Dr. Wayne Winegarden released the latest report in his series, Beyond the New Normal: Establishing a Pro-Growth Economic Policy Environment, a multi-year series illustrating how the coordination of pro-growth policies explain the different historical growth patterns of the U.S. economy. The 15 Percent Solution: Defining the Affordable Level of Government makes the case that the U.S. economy could regularly experience 3-4 percent annual growth rates or higher if Congress adopted the growth-maximizing level of economic spending –15 percent of national income.

 

He also released a study, “Breaking Down Barriers”, which argues that occupational licensing laws for insurance adjusters nationwide are leading to delays with victims of recent natural disasters in California and other states trying to quickly rebuild their lives.  The study makes the case that enacting reforms to remove these burdensome requirements would open the marketplace, allow claims to be processed faster, lower costs for consumers, and increase job opportunities.

center for the environment

The Center for the Environment reveals the dramatic and long-term trend towards a cleaner, healthier environment. It also examines and promotes the essential ingredients for abundant resources and environmental quality – property rights, markets, local action, and private initiative.

“Legislating Energy Poverty:  A Case Study of How California’s and New York’s Climate Change Policies are Increasing Energy Costs and Hurting the Economy,” by Dr. Wayne Winegarden, December 2018.

“Legislating Energy Poverty in California” (video to accompany study), December 2018.

In February 2018, Dr. Wayne Winegarden released Costly Subsidies for the Rich: Quantifying the Subsidies Offered to Battery Electric Powered Cars, a report that assesses the value of electric car subsidies and connects these subsidies to the income groups most likely to receive them.  According to the results of our research, 79 percent of electric vehicle plug-in tax credits are claimed by households with adjusted gross incomes of greater than $100,000 per year.  The project’s findings were featured in dozens of publications nationwide, including Investor’s Business Daily, the Orange County Register, American City Business Journals, and RealClearMarkets.

 

PRI released Legislating Energy Poverty in December 2018, a case study showing how the big government approach to fighting climate change taken by California and New York hurts working class and minority communities the hardest. The report was featured on Fox 11 News (Los Angeles), KPBS-TV (San Diego), KNTV-TV (San Francisco), and KIEM-TV (Eureka), and in the Buffalo News, Western Journal, Daily Caller, and California Political Review. In addition, two short promotional videos were released along with the study.

 

In June 2018, PRI co-sponsored with the Institute for Humane Studies a policy research seminar, Embracing a Free-Market Energy Future, in Vancouver, Canada. During the half-day seminar, scholars and policy experts discussed how “green energy” policies threaten people’s individual freedom, private property rights, and economic livelihood.

 

In July 2018, Dr. Winegarden debated Ralph Cavanagh, an attorney at the Natural Resources Defense Council, on Southern California Public Radio over a California bill that sets the goal of a 100 percent clean energy supply in the state by 2045. PRI scholars also received statewide media attention on a California legislative proposal to ban the sale of gas-powered cars in the state.

In April, PRI released the results of a survey of business executives in industries highly desired by California legislators (clean tech, R&D, manufacturing, and other industries), exploring why they aren’t moving to California despite offers of subsidies and favorable government policies.  The executives cited high costs of housing and real estate, the state’s poor-quality education system, and the expensive costs to do business here as the primary reasons why they are not locating or expanding in the Golden State.

When I want to know what the best minds in free-market policy are thinking on issues like health care, education, and the regulatory state, I often turn to Sally Pipes and her team of experts at the Pacific Research Institute.

—Stephen Moore

The final numbers are in, and they bear out our sense that 2018 was one of the most productive years for free market policy—and for PRI—in decades. We spent the year championing freedom, opportunity, and personal responsibility in California and across the nation, and were sought out for analysis and commentary more than ever before. Look at the tallies from our Media Impact report: In 2018, PRI scholars: 

•  Penned or were featured in 578 op-eds; 

•  Wrote 190 blog posts;  

•  Made 148 radio and 68 television appearances;

•  Recorded 52 podcasts; and

•  Were mentioned in 2,752 media articles.  

 

These numbers aren’t so much meaningful on their own as they are testament to how important—and how timely—our policy research and commentary is. None of this would be possible were it not for the support that you have shown to PRI. Your commitment to advancing free market policies is what made 2018 such a successful year. We remain enormously grateful to you for your time, commitment to our work, and financial support.

 

We were delighted to welcome hundreds of new supporters to PRI, including dozens of new Sir Antony Fisher Freedom Society members, those who contribute gifts of $1,000 or more each year. In addition to receiving our in-depth studies, books, and other publications, PRI donors are the very first to receive invitations to events.

In 2018, we hosted several events with prominent speakers, including Mark Steyn, Governor Pete Wilson, Heather Mac Donald, Andrew Puzder, John Taylor, and Charles Kesler.

 

In the near future, we may face the challenge of myriad bad policies—policies that threaten to damage the economy, burden taxpayers, stifle entrepreneurship, penalize success, and rob our children of a quality education. Our work over the past year has put us in a strong position to continue educating the public, formulating policy proposals for politicians, and setting an alternative media narrative to underscore the importance of freedom to statewide, and nationwide, well-being.

 

Your support is crucial to the continued success of our work. Standing together, we can spread the message of limited government, free enterprise, and personal responsibility far and wide throughout our state and country. Together, we can beat back failed, big-government policies and restore common sense to our state and national decision-making.

 

In addition to annual support, we encourage our donors to support our work through planned giving, including estate gifts and appreciated stock. For more information about contributing to PRI, please contact PRI’s Development Department at (626) 714-7572.
