Viewpoint describing how gentrification, when combined with sound housing policy, helps everyone, including the poor

Gentrification is a process whereby middle-class families and young professionals establish themselves in working-class urban neighbourhoods. By no means unique to Montreal, this process has generated some resistance on the part of anti-gentrification activists, some of whom have resorted to violent means in the belief that they are being displaced. Yet gentrification is a widespread phenomenon that yields largely beneficial outcomes for everyone—including the poorest members of society—and whose negative effects can be mitigated by sound economic policy.

Viewpoint reiterating the positive effects of the North American Free Trade Agreement for the three countries involved

The Republican Party’s presumptive nominee for the presidency of the United States, Donald Trump, has made the negative effects of the opening up of borders, and especially of trade between the United States and Mexico, one of his recurring themes. He claims that free trade does not benefit the United States. According to him, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is “a disaster” that needs to be renegotiated. In Canada, this opposition to free trade finds a certain echo among commentators and lobby groups.

Research Paper illustrating how the development of new drugs allows patients to lead longer, healthier lives and leads to savings elsewhere in the health care system

Although the costs of new pharmaceuticals are often the subject of critical media coverage, they are rarely juxtaposed with the benefits that these new drugs bring. Among other things, new research presented in this Research Paper investigates the impact that pharmaceutical innovation had on utilization of hospital care by cancer patients in Canada from 1995 to 2012.

The Ridiculous Ways Quebec Discourages Airbnb Users Cross The Line
Op-ed by Jasmin Guénette, Vice President of the MEI, published on August 18 in the Huffington Post.

Canada Should Not Follow Europe's Example In Taxing Online Purchases
Op-ed by Mathieu Bédard, Economist at the MEI, and Diego Menegon, Fellow at the Istituto Bruno Leoni, Italy, published on August 16 in the Huffington Post Canada.

"Super nurse" clinics are now allowing thousands of Quebecers to enjoy quick access to front-line care. Yet the government insists on maintaining a rigid, physician-centric model rather than allowing innovative solutions like doctorless clinics to emerge. As part of its health care research program, the MEI has produced a short documentary looking at the efficiency of this new model of clinics led by specialized nurse practitioners (SNPs).
