Epstein on the FDA and drug patents

I wish I would have heard the latest Econtalk podcast, “Richard Epstein on Property Rights and Drug Patents,” before writing my recent post on Mexico’s generic drug market.

Epstein, in conversation with Russ Roberts, discusses such things as what would happen if the FDA didn’t exist, the problems with long supply chains, the FDA’s orders of magnitude, and the impact of generics in the drug market. (h/t Econlog)
