‘Show me the money’

Big Pharma is an industry famous for ongoing excellent financial results and thereby loved by investors and analysts.

The Dutch business paper ‘Financiële Dagblad’ produced an article, by Thieu Vaessen on 8 February, which made quite clear how good the industry is doing:

Big Pharma: operational profit margin: 29,4%

Average on 300 international firms: operational profit margin 11,8%

GIMS wants to state: we all find it very logical that car manufacturers have invested for decennia heavely in the (direct) safety of their products, isn’t it then equilly logical if Big Pharma does the same for the (indirect) safety of their products??

Money can’t be the problem.
