Keating, Chief Economist, Small Business and Entrepreneurship
Council, Washington, D.C. and Columnist, Newsday, Long
Island, New York; Eleventh Annual National Conference on Private
Property Rights (PRFA, Albany, N.Y., October 13, 2007)

property rights protect the interests of small businesses, not
just "big pharma."

substances and activities from entering the marketplace if it
is merely possible, absent any scientific risk analysis, that
they or the processes used for their manufacture might cause
uncertain health or environmental harm sometime in the future.
