Billionaire philanthropist Michael Bloomberg is well-known in America for incessant moralizing over the products he believes government should ban people from consuming, in the name of good public health.
But few know the magnitude of Bloomberg’s impact in developing countries around the world.
Over the past decade, Bloomberg-funded organizations have made concerted efforts to eradicate low-risk nicotine products, such as vaping, in low and middle-income countries. They push narrow public health policies that disenfranchise and marginalize local populations.
In part-2 of this RegWatch special series we are joined by Michelle Minton, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C. Hear why she thinks Bloomberg’s one size fits all policy is “insidious” and a throwback to the “colonialist origins of public health.”
