  1. The Wild West nature of the pharmaceutical industry now seems to boil down to – way after the fact, that fact being many deaths and injuries – the company paying big fines to states and the U.S. Justice Department (ala Eli Lilly for lethal Zyprexa and Astra Zeneca for Seroquel – the latest example being Glaxo’s Avandia, a multi-billion dollar fine for 47,000 injuries and deaths). Why is not a dime of this money going to “fix” things? We all know the answer: This is set up as the cost of doing business, and the money goes into the til of government entities which are hard-pressed for cash. Heaven forbid that any of the guilty individuals would go to jail.

    What can change this?
