R&D spending may not really justify those high prices, after all

first_img Log In | Learn More Pharmalot Ed Silverman Pharmalot Columnist, Senior Writer Ed covers the pharmaceutical industry. For years, the pharmaceutical industry has maintained that high prices charged for many medicines in the US are needed to fund R&D, since so many other countries use various means to cap pricing.Now, though, a new analysis suggests that the additional sales that drug companies generate in the US, compared with four other well-to-do countries, greatly exceeds what they have spent on their global research and development.

FPSC pleased with continued interest in regulation of financial planners

first_img FP Canada, IQPF update projection assumption guidelines amid pandemic FSRA updates title reg proposal Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Related news Financial Planning Standards Council (FPSC) says it welcomes the continued interest in Thursday’s Ontario budget of the need for tailored regulation of financial planners. The Ontario government has committed to setting up an expert committee that will further study the merits of tailored regulation of financial planners and provide the government with options if regulation is required. “FPSC is encouraged by the government’s intention to move forward in investigating the need for tailored regulation of financial planners,” says Cary List, FPSC president & CEO. “We look forward to offering our continued leadership and expertise on this subject in order to safeguard and enhance the financial well-being of all Ontarians.” The budget announcement comes following the Ontario Ministry of Finance initiative to investigate the merits of proceeding with more tailored regulation of financial planners, outlined in the 2013 Fall Economic Statement. The government held industry consultations on the subject in January 2014, which included recommendations from FPSC and its partners in the Coalition for Professional Standards for Financial Planners.center_img IE Staff Keywords Financial planning,  ProfessionsCompanies Financial Planning Standards Council “Light planning” could expand access to financial advice Facebook LinkedIn Twitterlast_img read more

China’s Didi Chuxing plans IPO in 2017 – report

first_img Joseph Waring AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to MoreAddThisMore 16 MAY 2016 Chinese ride-hailing app Didi Chuxing, formerly known as Didi Kuaidi, reportedly is planning an initial public offering (IPO) in New York as soon as next year.The timing of the IPO will depend on how the competitive landscape evolves over the next year, Bloomberg reported.The announcement comes just days after Apple said it is investing $1 billion in Didi, the single largest investment the company has ever received. Apple joins companies like Tencent and Alibaba to “help further Didi’s mission of building a data-driven rideshare platform to serve hundreds of millions of Chinese drivers and passengers,” Didi said in a statement.Didi claims to control 87 per cent of the Chinese private car-hailing market and more than 99 per cent of the taxi-hailing business, but it is facing fierce competition from US-based Uber, which received nearly $2 billion in funding from a group of Chinese investors in January and has been aggressively expanding in China, and the Asia region.Back in December, four ride-hailing services — Didi Chuxing, US-based Lyft, India’s Ola and Southeast Asia’s GrabTaxi – agreed to partner to scale up their services to compete against Uber.

US/CARICOM Trade: Caribbean support required for Bill to extend Caribbean Basin…

first_imgBy Elizabeth Morgan Countries of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) continue to export goods to the USA under the Caribbean Basin Initiative (CBI) comprising the 1983/1990 Caribbean Basin Economic Recovery Act (CBERA) and the 2000 Caribbean Basin Trade Partnership Act (CBTPA), which grant duty free access to the US market for a wide range of products. The USA is the principal trading partner of CARICOM Member States with which the USA maintains an overall trade surplus. The CBTPA, linked to the CBERA, is due to expire in September 2020. The required waiver from the World Trade Organization (WTO) Most Favoured Nation (MFN) principle will expire in December 2019. Congresswoman Terri Sewell (Democrat, Alabama) Sep 16, 2020 Oct 7, 2020 Share this:PrintTwitterFacebookLinkedInLike this:Like Loading… On February 8, 2019, it was reported by several US news sources that in the current 116th Congress (2019-2020), Congresswoman Terri Sewell (Democrat, Alabama) and Congressman Brad Wenstrup (Republican, Ohio), as bipartisan co-sponsors, had introduced a Bill, H.R. 991 to extend certain provisions of the CBERA until September 30, 2030 and for other purposes, in the House of Representatives. Recall that a similar Bill was introduced in the House by Representative Sewell and then Representative Carlos Curbelo (Republican, Florida) in September 2017. Congressman Brad Wenstrup (Republican, Ohio) The current Bill H.R. 991 was referred to the House Ways and Means Committee for examination.  This Committee is mandated to examine all Bills with tax implications and to recommend them to the full House for adoption. If approved, it then goes to the Senate, and if approved there, is recommended to the President for signature. As a bipartisan Bill, it should have relatively easy passage through the House. However, this is not guaranteed and a lobbying effort is required from the Caribbean countries which are now the primary beneficiaries. The Guyanese American Chamber of Commerce out of South Florida has already called on the US and Guyanese business communities to support the Bill. The US Chambers of Commerce operating in the Caribbean, in Jamaica, Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago, as well as other private sector groups in Jamaica and other Caribbean countries, should also be rallying to support this Bill. It seems to me that the Bill has to be considered and adopted in Congress to be signed by the President by September 2019. In a previous article on the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), I had also suggested a review of the revised NAFTA, which is now the US, Mexico and Canada (USMC) Agreement, as I do believe that there is a link between the NAFTA and CBPTA as it relates to Rules of Origin. It is reported that CBERA/CBTPA is still having a positive impact for exporters and importers of goods from the Caribbean. Note that Caribbean goods enter the US market receiving preferential treatment under CBERA/CBTPA (CBI), the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP), and the WTO MFN. I am of the view that it is important for the Caribbean beneficiaries to retain the CBERA/CBTPA.
