So how does it all end? Give us the cliff notes version.
We have been funneling billions chasing the dogs tail. Big three pharma gets billions to lay in ineffective drugs when governments should work together at the source of the problem, in third world countries to build an early warning system and improve nutrition and safe water. Many of these diseases multiply for months before they are detected, time that is wasted when dealing with cures and vaccines. You know this is true, every year we hear about a new strain of flu, that our vaccines will help but will not be as effective. This is because we are using generic vaccines that do not target a specific strain. For a global system the cost is somewhere around 3.5 billion annually, the other side of the coin is trillions lost in a economic collapse and thousands of deaths. That's about as good as I can explain it.
Maybe he didn't read the section where they bashed the United States administration in 2012 for awarding three pharma companies 25 billion for research on emerging and reemerging drug resistant diseases. They called it a misallocation of resources.
