Monologue

Dr. Wallach starts the show today discussing a Time magazine article.  The article contends that the U.S. spends 16% of the GNP (gross national product) on healthcare.  While the U.S. ranks 46th in health and longevity and 19th out of 19 in preventable diseases.

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss another Time magazine article in which data compiled by the E.U. (European Union).  This data revealed that the world's largest phamaceutical companies often use patent lawsuits, "patent clusters" and other tactics to keep generics off of the market.  In an 8 year time span ending in 2007 the EU estimates that these companies cost European consumers up to $4 billion dollars.  Many U.S. companies were also cited and these same tactics are used in U.S. as well.
