The Fight for Health Freedom Loses a Champion: Jack Calfee, RIP

When I got into health policy in 2000, my first projects focused on government intervention in prescription drugs: Patent law, the regulatory bureaucracy, restrictions on free speech (Direct-to-Consumer advertising, detailing physicians, et cetera). Jack Calfee was the giant in this field: His thorough, accurate, and diligent research demolished any legitimate claim that the federal government should exercise undue interference over the actions of patients, doctors, or pharmaceutical innovators.

We need him today more than ever. Jack Calfee, RIP.
