Nebraska Just Posted the Lowest Unemployment Ever Recorded. Guess Why.

In some impressive and instructive news, the state of Nebraska just claimed the lowest unemployment rate ever recorded.  The likely reason shouldn't surprise anyone:

 

Nebraska’s jobless rate tends to run below the national rate. Economists cite a combination of factors that have kept joblessness in the state well below the U.S. average from the onset of the pandemic. Nebraska had fewer government-imposed restrictions on business, helping it avoid steep job losses some states experienced earlier in the pandemic."

 

At some point, perhaps other more stubbornly leftist states will catch on before every one of their residents and businesses flees to more economically hospitable states with fewer regulations, lower taxes and less government generally.  But don't hold your breath…[more]

Brand Name Drug Makers Held Liable for Generic Drug Label Warnings Print
Thursday, September 04 2014

The Alabama Supreme Court recently upheld an earlier decision that found the makers of brand-name drugs liable for the warning labels on the generic version of their drugs.

Citing the theory of innovator liability, the Alabama Supreme Court ruled that, even if the plaintiff only used the generic brand, the brand-name drug maker had potential liability since generic drug makers must provide an exact copy of the warning labels on the brand-name drugs they copy. 

Alabama is the first state to find brand-name drug manufacturers potentially liable.

In 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court decided in Pliva v. Mensing that generic drug makers cannot be held liable through “failure to warn” lawsuits, since such claims are pre-empted by federal requirements that prevent the manufacturers from providing different warnings than are provided on the brand-name version.

According to news reports, the FDA is in the process of finalizing new generic drug label requirements.
