Follow the Money

The most startling fact about 2002 is that the combined profits for the ten drug companies in the Fortune 500 ($35.9 billion) were more than the profits for all the other 490 businesses put together ($33.7 billion) . . . When I say this is a profitable industry, I mean really profitable. It is difficult to conceive of how awash in money Big Pharma is. -Marcia Angell, former Editor-in-Chief of the world's most prestigious medical journal, The New England Journal of Medicine.
