short term wealth

Like making a tire that never needs to be replaced...


Drug patents are 20 years here in the US. CEOs and their board's live quarter by quarter and their pay is tied directly to performance. You think that CEO/board doesn't want to bask in personal wealth and glory while skyrocketing their companies valuation vs looking out for the their predecessors whom they don't even know 20 years down the road?  That's asinine and the exact opposite of what they're compensated to do.

How much of those 20 years are pure sales Fagden?

Another no nothing topic.

Most drug patents are to replace those falling to generics.

No ...the Government doesn't want us to live that long.   You think Social Security is strained now?   It would be obliterated with many living over 100 ... It would be beneficial to the company share price though.

Poor Fagden, a whole 8.2 years, if nothing goes wrong.  

 

Once a drug reaches the market, companies have a median of 8.2 years before the patent expires and generics can reach the market. Most of the time between the filing of a patent application and when a drug is marketed is determined by decisions that are largely under the control of the company.

You did it! You posted something with actual content!

Unfortunately, the point still remains. Performance packages for CEOs and their leadership aren't 8 years out. Average tenure in fortune 500 CEOs is even less than that. 
 

But you've still got your 'they' theory going, so don't give up hope yet.

This is what happens when a nation has a for profit healthcare system that trades human health like pork bellies. 

Yep.  I've never been a fan of the system.  We may have the best tech but, at what cost?  It's not helping with longer lives.

There is infinitely more profit in treating the illness than finding a cure.  Plus, if the treatment doesn't work, it can be blamed on the complexity of the illness.  "Covid variants".  "Flu strains".
