As discussed in class, more research will help you determine whether you want to focus on drug regulation mechanisms (the FDA vs. a European equivalent), and focusing on one country might be helpful and allow you to do a more specific one-to-one comparison between the US and one other place. You might also find that there is a relationship between increased regulation in the U.S. and the increased cost of health care here vs. Europe (one would have to verify that this is in fact true); you might also find that there is a particular kind of rhetoric behind why the FDA takes longer to approve drugs, etc. For your first paper, though, I think it will be important to establish that there is in fact a difference in regulation practices, and explore how it got this way in the first place. You’ve got great questions that will take you through to the end of the semester.
