Synopsis: Exposes the greed behind the companies that make up the pharmaceutical industry, analyzing the reluctance of the companies to take risks, the raising of prices when faced with competition, the real reasons behind high prices, and other key issues. Original.
From Library Journal:
The authors, reporters for the Philadelphia Inquirer , attack the pharmaceutical business in America. They explain why prescription drug prices have risen three times faster than inflation and how drug companies promote their products to doctors, pharmacists, nurses, and hospital administrators. They also criticize the drug industry for profiting from research done by government and academic laboratories, developing new medications that are no better than drugs on the market, and abandoning research on potentially useful drugs when the anticipated profit will not be big enough. A chapter explaining why drug prices are lower in other countries is of particular interest. Although a good effort is made to present the problem, little is suggested to remedy the situation. Recommended for business and medical collections in public libraries.
