CEI Daily - Organic Food, Free Trade, and the CEI Podcast


Organic Food


Prince Charles gave the keynote address at The Washington Post's "Future of Food" conference this week.


Senior Fellow Greg Conko responds to Prince Charles' idealization of organic farming.


"Anti-BPA legislation is based on environmental activists’ wrongheaded claims that BPA poses an unreasonable risk to human health—specifically to children—but the overwhelming body of research suggests otherwise.  Unfortunately, as more of these misguided bans succeed, policymakers are likely to begin targeting BPA use in all types of food packaging, as several bills already introduced in Congress do."


Free Trade


Politicians justify protectionist trade policy by arguing that free trade kills American jobs.


Fellow in Regulatory Policy Ryan Young says that's simply not true.


There are 23,465,000 more jobs in America now than there were before NAFTA. This despite the last few years of hard economic times! So when someone claims that free trade agreements are job killers, they are either uninformed or lying. Neither option speaks well of the accuser.
