Examining the Link Between Price Regulation, Reimportation, and Pharmaceutical R&D Investment
John Vernon, AEI-Brookings Joint Center for Regulatory Studies, 4-1-04

This paper examines the link between prices and investment, and considers re-importation as another mechanism to control pharmaceutical prices. Vernon finds that if the U.S. imposed price controls on drugs it would lead to a 23% to 33% decline in industry R&D. Vernon's findings suggest that drug importation, far from being harmless, would slow the advancement of the next generation of critical medicines.
