Election 2016

Department: Letters
Keywords: ACS letters

Rather than adopting a doomsday outlook regarding the results of the 2016 U.S. election (C&EN, Nov. 14, page 5), think about the “regulatory changes” Walmart made within a short five or so years. During this time, the retail giant orchestrated a marriage with Proctor & Gamble to make laundry soap “greener.” The partnership resulted in new and innovative packaging, waste reduction, space savings, and a reduction in consumer (retail) costs—all without any regulatory umbrella.

Other enterprise projects should yield the same type of research and innovation. So rather than focus on loss of regulation— which might just be good—the enterprise communities should come together themselves to make the world a better place, taking the lead from Walmart.

Correction

Oct. 31, page 25: In C&EN’s feature on 10 start-ups to watch, the founders of two companies were presented incorrectly. The founders of Kyulux are Chihaya Adachi, Junji Adachi, Akira Minakuchi, and Christopher J. Savoie. The founders of NuMat Technologies are Omar K. Farha, Benjamin Hernandez, and Christopher Wilmer.
