"Don't want to crowd out the work that fathers need to do. Because of the asymmetrical burdens that women have in childbearing that men do need to be involved and part of that involvement is financial provision. And so if the government steps in and at such a high rate that men don't need to be making sure that they're providing for their children financially and hopefully while they when they take seriously that financial obligation that they start to take seriously that being attentive and the emotional obligation as well, I think that's really important and I wouldn't want to crowd that out. So that's where there's a bit of a complication and I'd want really experts. I'd like to be in the room, but I'd also want real policy experts kind of hashing these things out and I hope we get to the place where we can do that. So then always for final question, what are three books that have influenced you if you would recommend to the audience? So the three books I picked I'm sure all of your guests say it's so difficult to do so. But I decided I would really pick three books that were incredibly formative for me after my time as a women's study student at middlebury college when I was kind of changing my views about things in a lot of different ways, but I fell upon again the communitarian movement and started reading a lot of Marianne glendon's work in the book I argue that she is really the complete kind of and true heir of what I lay out as this wolfson crafty and vision and so have an entire chapter devoted to her really what I call dignitary and thought to. I sort of think of it as both a commuter and a dignitary and but her book writes talk was incredibly influential for those who don't know her marrying glendon is just a newly retired so now Meredith's Professor of Harvard Law School. And in that book, she gives a kind of, I think, very even handed critique of the libertarian philosophy that's really at the heart of much sort of thinking on both the left and the right and how there's kind of a neglect of a real robust American tradition of concern for the vulnerable, the dependent, kind of a tradition of hospitality and the common good. The second book is by historian Elizabeth Fox Genovese, which is a book called feminism without illusions. She is the late founder of the women's studies program at Emory university in this book feminism without illusions. Is a critique of liberal individualism and again, libertarianism in modern feminism. And the third book is a book by the late University of Chicago political theorist gene Beth elstein, her book, public man, private woman, and in a similar way, although she is diving really deeply into how western political theorists, starting with played on Aristotle and up through have really thought about man and woman and public life and private life and kind of their relation between them. And it's really a call at the end there for a revaluation of the work that's done in the private sphere as we call it now. And they're real attention to the needs of children, especially within feminism. And she concludes really incredibly learned book with this in her last chapter and I'll quote, I'm calling here for redemption of everyday life. A recognition of the joys and vexations, its values and purpose and its place in becoming human. And I think this is really in some ways, in some really fundamental way, the call of my book as well.

"kate sinclair" Discussed on The Argument
"Based on what i've read. Rachel does that sound right to you. So i think it's really hard to say what the status quo is again. The projections are all over the place. We had some some i- pharma back estimate saying we would have something like ten to twelve billion doses by the end of this year. They do not seem on track to do that. So count me very skeptical of that. I do think some of the later estimates are also probably off base. I mean it does seem like things are accelerating not at the pace. That was promised so to me. I would expect maybe end of next year that there would be wide access basically across all countries but it is dependent on a lot of contingencies as tires. And i guess my position is the waiver itself would not do anything to speed things up. But i do think there's things we could do to speed things up my last question for both of you and it's kind of a magic one question. I think that a concern for all three of us is that as americans return to some sort of normalcy. Though i don't really want to go back to twenty nine thousand nine hundred. That sounds annoying a lot of ways but covert nineteen. That's quickly becoming a multi-tier disease and we've seen that happened. Time and time again with hiv aids. In the united states people can have access to prophylaxis and hiv can still be killing thousands of people because again it becomes a multi-tier disease. So if you had access to a magic wand and could recreate the way. The world develops manufactures and distributes medicine and vaccines. What would it look like. What would be your top priority. Change if you could make if you were in charge of everything rachel. Why don't you go first. Yes well if. I was in charge of everything i would love to see. Pull mechanisms and prizes. Basically if we have big problems get the world together. Say hey if we had a cure for hiv. That would be amazing. Not just the treatment. We have very treatment but a cure and it's gone forever or a vaccine and you'll never get it and if you come up with this we will pay you off the top ten billion dollars or twenty five billion dollars or one hundred billion dollars for some cases it might be worth paying an enormous amount of money and we say open competition work on it. Get it to us. And then we'll buy out the ip around and we'll make sure it's available to everyone at cost or cost plus a small margin to compensate the generic producers. So i think i still believe that. There's an important rule for private-sector incentives and private sector greed. Frankly i mean greet is powerful motivator and it can get you pretty far but it's our job is a global policy community. Church channel agreed for good and not for just padding people's pockets without creating social benefit. So i'd like to see that done more explicitly. I want to ask you about that before. Tiger gives us how he is going to save us all by taking charge of everything. Because i think you about that my concern with the argument that greed foments good things in the pharmaceutical space is that it absolutely can but that greed can benefit a specific community. And we've seen that with hiv medications which can make for certain people hiv essentially a chronic condition and for other people who don't have health insurance or other people who don't have access to that kind of thing we still have a concern in sub saharan africa for example of preventative mother to child transmission of hiv where those drugs aren't as available. I think that's my concern here because drug companies they'll make whatever they want to make if it makes money but for me the concern is for whom the exhume people is an interesting one because at this point. Hiv and this was not true earlier in the hiv pandemic. the drugs are widely produced by generic producers. I do think though that your core point of okay. Greed is good but does that work for everyone. Is there again. I think it's our job as kind of policy makers at the national level i mean. I'm not a policymaker. I worked for a think tank. But i talk about policy. Almost as good as global policy community is to create the right kinds of incentives that address that right that say it's not an open free market in the sense that it's chaos it's anarchy sell whatever you want. And if someone can't afford it they die. I think we need to organize ourselves as large payers. Were drugs and services that are able to negotiate prices based on affordability and cost effectiveness. I think we need to have in enabling regulatory framework for that. So that's on us as a policy community i agree. Don't leave that to the drug companies and expect them to do of their own volition in free will but if we create the right incentives for them to do that then they will respond. I love an answer. That tells me that i am both right and also wrong to her. What is your top priority change. So i think what is the funding. That's gone into making these vaccines. They were more openly accessible. Because all the government had dearest a lot of the investment basically govern should be setting manufacturing plans to be able to carry that through so that the scale of immediately i think also the world trade organization is in desperate. Need of revision is interesting. That the trade agreement signed ninety-four talks about technology transfer and yet that bogging has not lived up ultimately i think we do need to get local country governments in the global south to start investing in their infrastructure. So it's not entirely on the global matsu for them. They need to stop putting some money into their systems. But as i said before i think just the way the maderna's were able to just create manufacturing capability. They got government subsidies. We need to be saying that these other countries can do that too but they need to be incentivized to be able to do that. And that has to be a bit of a level playing field on to be able to do that. Well thank you for joining me for the argument which is sometimes just the agreement with some light arguing rachel silverman is posse with the center for global development and her i mean is the co founder and co executive director at the initiative for medicines excess. A knowledge thank you both so much for joining me to help me understand. Vaccine patents waivers the world trade organization. Thank you both so much. thank you so much. It's easy to go down pat and rabbit hole online. Trust me i cannot stop talking about intellectual property rates so let me recommend a few pieces to get started with to learn more i an issue of the newsletter the ink called of patents and power that has interviews with people who support bathing the patent on the other side. You can read a piece in the harvard law. Blog called the covid nineteen vaccine patent waiver. The wrong tool for the right goal. You can also read a piece in the economist. By the head of bio a trade group that includes pharmaceutical companies arguing that patents of the reasons cova nineteen vaccines exist and waving them would undermine our future response. And i recommend the opinion guest essay. The west has been hoarding more than vaccines by walden. Bello co-founder of focus on the global south and activist thinks you can find links to all of these nar episode knows. The argument is a production of times opinion. It's produced phoebe.
