- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
The idea that drug and device development companies are 'greedy' and that's why they need to make a profit is just rediculous.
It cost > $100millions on average to develop a new drug. A device, comping from university research to the bedside can cost up to $100million. That money comes from somewhere...think about it. It comes from investors that make these VERY RISKY investments with the idea that one out of 10 will be profitable.
Without profitability on 1/10 new drug/devices, these investors CANT INVEST, and the drug/devices will not be available.
Don't complain about greed, that frankly naive and childish.
