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.

Viewpoint describing how increased competition and a smaller regulatory state can reduce corruption

There have been several corruption scandals in Quebec and in the rest of Canada in recent years. Corruption is a problem that affects all countries and all societies, but it is much more prevalent in certain regions than in others. Economic analysis has several things to teach us about these disparities and about economic principles that can check this scourge.

Android Smartphones Cannot Possibly Undermine Competition

Landing the right reform for air travel
Op-ed by Alexandre Moreau, Public Policy Analyst at the MEI, published on July 23 in several Sun Media papers.

"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).
