Question: Do you think there are any pharmaceutical companies that stand out in terms of transparency of trial results? And at the other end of the scale, are there any companies that consistently fail to publish negative trials?Of what reminds me that, that "everybody does what they have to do, to succeed in the marketplace"?
Ben Goldacre: No. I have no reason to believe that any one is any better than the other. If you have bad regulations, incoherently enforced, then everybody does what they have to do, to succeed in the marketplace.
"That which is now to be expropriated is no longer the labourer working for himself, but the capitalist exploiting many labourers. This expropriation is accomplished by the action of the immanent laws of capitalistic production itself, by the centralisation of capital. One capitalist always kills many."Yes, the "expropriation of many capitalists by few capitalists", everybody has to do what he has to do to succeed – aka Hobbesianism.
