I wanted to thank you for this excellent read!! I definitely loved every little bit of it.

Frankly, the more I hear from Angell, the less impressed I am. I found many of her claims in that podcast laughable (at best). Here are links to some very good critiques of her interview.

With regard to the Me-too issue: I never understood why they are so villified. The best left-wing critique of pharma is the fact that patent periods are so long and allow a prolonged monopoly power with increased prices.

Me-too's theoretically cut into that monopoly power and lower prices!, even if they are no better than the first mover. If this not true in practice, that is a problem with the way payors reimburse for drugs, not a problem of the drug co.'s themselves.
