If war is too important to be left to the generals…

You have heard that war is too important to be left to the generals; likewise, drug development is too important to be left to the drug companies“. Discuss…

I rather like that. Snappy. Poor old pharma though. They must feel like a punch bag. One often hears the argument that because drugs are so important then pharma should be in public hands. While I’m not a big fan some of the excesses of drug marketing and their constant spin spin spinning, not to mention the creation of conditions to fit drugs rather than the other way around, the idea of having the pharmaceutical industry back in the public sector makes me shudder…! British Leyland all over again.
