Did you know BigPharma doesn't believe in telling you price of their drugs?

In my next story, I asked Roche to tell me how much Cipla is supposed to sell Tociliuzumab for, given the shortage & blackmarket. They refused.

Here's Gilead on Remdesivir: $2340

March 17 2020: "#Gates has proved there is a far easier path to political power, one that allows unelected billionaires to shape public policy in ways that almost always generate favorable headlines: #charity."
"Describing his approach by turns as "creative capitalism" and “catalytic philanthropy," Gates oversaw a shift at his foundation to leverage "all the tools of #capitalism" to "connect the promise of #philanthropy with the power of private enterprise."

#Microsoft #Pharma
The #Gates Foundation has made over the last two decades, ...close to $2 billion in tax-deductible charitable donations to private companies—including some of the largest businesses in the world, such as #GlaxoSmithKline, #Unilever, #IBM, & #NBC Universal #Media."

Look for instances of Trump meeting w/ anyone from #Novartis at #Davos around 1/22/20 - where Trump was still downplaying the #Pandemic.

@TorniAlan @RobertKennedyJr @CapitalJon @mektronik 1. As a lawyer I would call it “coming to the nuisance”: #Bayer knew about the challenges against #glyphosate (#Roundup). They exist in the #EU, in Africa, in #Asia & the #US: Bad news for Bayer - In the US you have to pay huge damages! Good for the consumer! #Monsanto
@TorniAlan @RobertKennedyJr @CapitalJon @mektronik 2. I would love to see what the due diligence report stated during the #Monsanto-takeover - It seems that #Bayer underestimated the risk-impact of #glyphosate somewhat! Many concerns on #Roundup existed for years! There is also a reason why #Monsanto was called #Monsatan...
@TorniAlan @RobertKennedyJr @CapitalJon @mektronik 3. Never understood why a 150 year old #Pharma-company, with good brands,a very decent goodwill and high margins would expand further into #CropScience (never did well for #Bayer) with a company like #Monsanto (soso reputation, lower margins & obvious risk)!

Ορισμένες σκέψεις για τους μάρτυρες της #Novartis.
Όπως αποδείχτηκε από την πρωινή συνέντευξη Πολάκη, η Κυβέρνηση γνωρίζει ποιοι είναι.
Αφού η Κυβέρνηση γνωρίζει, οι μάρτυρες δεν μπορούν προφανώς να καταθέσουν περιπτώσεις χρηματισμού κυβερνητικών στελεχών.
Πώς γίνεται όμως, εάν->
-> ο Φρουζής "χρημάτιζε όλο το σύμπαν", όπως διατείνονται οι μάρτυρες, να σταμάτησε ξαφνικά να χρηματίζει πολιτικούς μόλις εξελέγη ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ;
Κρατήστε αυτή τη σκέψη και πάμε στο εξής: σύμφωνα με τους μάρτυρες, ο Φρουζής χρημάτισε τον Πικραμμένο που διετέλεσε υπηρεσιακός ΠΘ μόλις->
17 ημέρες. Επίσης χρημάτισε τον Σαμαρά στις 26/01/18, δηλαδή σε χρονικό σημείο που παρέδιδε την εξουσία στον Τσίπρα και άρα δεν μπορούσε να του κάνει ρουσφέτι. Αν αυτά ισχύουν (όπως προφανώς κρίνει η Τουλουπάκη), προκύπτει ότι η μέθοδος χρηματισμού της Novartis είναι η τακτική->
