Horse Whipping Time for Pharma Execs

Horse whipping used to be an actual thing – as a kid, I can remember hearing of it happening, and the nearly wholly justified reasons it happened.

Here we have yet another instance where this form of corrective action seems appropriate: vital heart medicines, out-of-patent, nitroprusside went from $27.46 in 2012 to $880.88 in 2015; isoproterenol went from $26.20 to $1,790.11. These are meds without any substitute.

This is only the latest in a long, sordid chapter, mostly American, of criminal behavior on the part of the people running pharma corporations. And nothing is done about it.
