Avik S. A. Roy
Commentary on politics & policy from Forbes’ Opinion Editor.
I am Forbes' Opinion Editor. I am a Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, and the author of Transcending Obamacare and How Medicaid Fails the Poor. I've served as a policy advisor to three presidential candidates: Marco Rubio and Rick Perry in 2016, and Mitt Romney in 2012. I'm on Twitter at @Avik. In addition to my writing at Forbes, I sometimes write for National Review. My work has also appeared in National Affairs, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The Atlantic, and other publications. I'm often on cable news; you can find a collection of my TV clips at YouTube.com/aviksaroy. For an archive of my writing prior to February 2011, please visit avikroy.net. Professionally, I'm the founder of Roy Healthcare Research, an investment and policy research firm. In this role, I sometimes serve as a paid advisor to health care investors and industry stakeholders. Previously, I worked as an analyst and portfolio manager at J.P. Morgan, Bain Capital, and other firms.
