"Last year the pharmaceutical industry had sales in excess of $300 billion. Clearly one way or another we all pay - whether we buy the drugs directly or through taxation. But is it less clear that we are getting value for money? In one of the first independent investigations of the modern healthcare system, Jacky Law shows how a small number of corporations have come to dominate the healthcare agenda in Britain and America. She reveals a system in which the relentless pursuit of profit is crowding out the public good. Effective regulators are under intense pressure from corporate lobbies, and companies spend more money on marketing than they spend on research and development. Meanwhile the cost of new drugs rises relentlessly while the number of original new products declines." -- from the publisher - (October 2006).
