      Why Did It Take an Activist So Long to Call Bt?

      Patients Versus Shareholders

      Regulation and state intervention in the economy has a bad rap in the US. The Trump government claims that its deregulation drive (mostly in the environmental and financial spheres), is at least partly responsible for the economic miracle.
