Pharma's Obscene Profits

August 10, 2009 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 87, ISSUE 32

Congratulations to Maureen Rouhi! Finally, somebody points out the obscene profits made by the pharmaceutical industry while the rest of the country struggles to pay for necessary medications (C&EN, June 8, page 3). I love the argument that they need these profits for research and development; the profits are after R&D and go to shareholders. Unfortunately, most of the public doesn't realize what a scam that is.
