Wenig geld in antibiotics
more money in cancer
- new antibiotics are always last-resort antibiotics. thus less used. thus less money.
Unternehmen haben auch eine Verantwortung gegenueber der Gesellschaft.
Der Markt Privatwirtschaft wird die Loesung nicht leisten koennen.
Politik und Gesellschaft muss sich der Veraenderung stellen.
Wenn die grossen OECD staaten eingreifen und stuetzen, kann big pharma nicht davon gewinn machen.
"Eine oeffentliche Aufgabe" - die einfachste loesung. Anstatt halbe eingriffe.
big pharma opt for profit maximisation
logic, why fight a losing battel. enemy that eventually will develop a resistance against your antibiotic? go to war and fight a battle with clear outlook for return of investment.

EU und Mercosur: Warum Jair Bolsonaro plötzlich für den Freihandel ist - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Dabei hatte kaum jemand mehr so richtig daran geglaubt, dass sich die Parteien dies- und jenseits des Atlantiks nochmal zusammenfinden. Aber plötzlich zeigten vor allem die Big Player Argentinien und Brasilien ungewohnte Einigkeit und machten so das Freihandelsabkommen möglich. Der Einigungswille ist politischem Kalkül und den jeweiligen nationalen Nöten geschuldet, aber auch der Einsicht, dass man sich auf dem Wüterich im Weißen Haus nicht verlassen kann.

Selbst Brasiliens rechtsradikaler Staatschef Jair Bolsonaro geht vorsichtig auf Distanz zu den USA und Donald Trump. So ist das Abkommen auch ein klares Zeichen aus Lateinamerika an den US-Präsidenten, der die Nafta mit Mexiko und Kanada aufgekündigt und dem Nachbarn neue Konditionen aufgedrückt hat. Die Region will weiter offene Märkte und faire Konditionen.

Umweltschützer warnen schon jetzt: Die neuen Absatzmärkte für Fleisch- und Sojaexporte könnten zur Folge haben, dass die Weide- und Anbauflächen erweitert werden - und dafür der Regenwald im Amazonas dran glauben muss.

Toby Young: running free school was harder than I thought | London Evening Standard
Toby Young today admitted running a free school is more difficult than he thought as he prepares to step down as CEO of the West London Free School trust.

Mr Young admitted he had been “arrogant” to presume schools could improve just by having high expectations and said he regrets criticising teachers, state schools and local education authorities.

Is Britain's housing bubble turning Japanese? - Renegade Inc
Britain is in the grip of a housing crisis. But contrary to some Daily Mail speculators, the bricks and mortar economy is not going the way of Japan, circa 1990. Economist Neil Wilson explains why the same economic and political forces suppressing Japanese property prices will keep British prices artificially inflated for the foreseeable future. [...] The British building industry has heavily consolidated over the past twenty years, creating an Oligopoly [...] Britain is in the grip of a housing crisis. Yet successive governments have allowed this land speculation to flourish. Industry press releases deflect the blame to local council “red tape”, while sitting on thousands of hectares lying undeveloped “until market conditions improve”.

Naomi Klein: ‘Trump is an idiot, but don’t underestimate how good he is at that’ | Books | The Guardian
One essential ingredient of resistance, she suggests, is to retain a belief in telling and understanding complex stories, keeping faith with narrative.

One of the questions that Klein’s book does not reach a conclusion about is how conscious Trump is of his shock doctrine tactics. Is he a demagogue in the scheming manner of Putin and Erdoğan, or just a useful idiot for the forces around him?

Breast surgeon Ian Paterson inquiry pledge from Tories - BBC News

[...] The Heart of England NHS Trust has paid out almost £18m in damages and legal costs to hundreds of his former patients. These cases did not form part of the criminal proceedings.
An independent report into his work in 2013, by lawyer Sir Ian Kennedy, found concerns dated back to 2003 but were not dealt with for four years.

School budget squeeze 'is reducing pupils' subject choice' - BBC News
The English Baccalaureate or EBacc was brought in by the coalition government in 2010 for pupils achieving at least a GCSE C grade in English, maths, the sciences, a language and geography or history.
The percentages of pupils entering and achieving this standard are among measures used by government to determine a school's performance.
The poll suggests pupils' options are being narrowed throughout the secondary curriculum.

Followed by asking parents to clean school in evening and buy toiletpaper. ] The research calculated that a combination of the new funding method, reduced local authority spending on schools and inflationary pressures, would lead to about half of all schools facing a reduction in per-pupil spending of between 6% and 11% by 2019-20.

UK growth forecast upgraded amid warning over inflation | Business | The Guardian
NIESR said it remained convinced that the economy would slow this year as higher inflation reduced consumer spending power. “We expect the composition of growth to rebalance towards net trade, as the headwinds facing households from the erosion of their real incomes weigh on consumer spending while the depreciation of sterling supports net trade,” said Simon Kirby, NIESR’s head of macroeconomic forecasting. [...] The thinktank said its economic modelling showed that the benefits of the free-trade deals the government hopes to sign with the US, Canada and leading emerging economies would be dwarfed by the damage caused to exports of both goods and services to the EU.

A hard truth for Leave voters: Brexit means big government
Britain has seen a renaissance in jobs since 2013, of that there is no doubt. But most of those extra jobs were among the self-employed or fell into categories that can only be described as insecure and low-paid. When companies finally took the plunge and advertised full-time jobs from 2014 onwards, around a third went to migrants. [...] It is this mostly older group of workers across the developed world, worried about their pay, pensions and conditions of employment, that want to slam the brakes on globalisation and reject the remedy proposed by big business: greater labour-market flexibility and only limited job protections. [ Globalisation as a great rebalancing of the world economy between the west and the rest (BRIC and co) ] [...] Only government can provide the cure, with a commitment to invest where the private sector cannot or will not go.

We have entered a new era of conflict, warns new book
In his new book, Irregular War (IB Tauris) , he reflects on Isis, al-Qaida, Boko Haram, Al Shabab, and the Taliban - all separate manifestations, he says, of a new non-state dynamic driving international conflict through asymmetric and hybrid warfare. But their significance is more fundamental. They are part of what Rogers calls “an historical shift towards revolts from the margins”. And such revolts are made more likely by “the widening global socio-economic divide and the onset of climate disruption”. [...] The causes of conflict are many and deep – economic, political, societal, environmental, demographic. [...] “the increasing marginalisation of the majority of the world’s people caused by the workings of the neo-liberal system of international economic activity” which concentrates most of the fruits of economic growth in the hands of a transglobal elite of some 1.5bn people.

NHS budget control 'will require staff cuts'
It says the government should be honest about NHS spending plans at a time when patient demand is rising. [...] The NHS leadership is set to unveil plans to get hospitals and other trusts to stick to agreed spending limits. In the last financial year, trusts ran up a collective deficit of £2.4bn - and the aim is to cut that figure significantly. [...] "It is no longer credible to argue that the NHS can continue to meet increasing demand for services, deliver current standards of care and stay within its budget. This is widely understood within the NHS and now needs to be debated with the public. "There are no easy choices, but it would be disastrous to adopt a mindset that fails to acknowledge the serious state of the NHS in England today." //&! bbc.in/29mkr7G - An overspend would be a serious breach of Whitehall protocol and lead to senior officials being hauled over the coals by the National Audit Office.

Theresa May accused of treating EU migrants as a pawn in Brexit talks | Politics | The Guardian
The home secretary is facing intense political pressure to give cast iron assurance that the rights of EU migrants to remain in the UK would not be used as a bargaining chip in any future Brexit talks with the European Union.

Theresa May was accused of treating millions of EU citizens as a pawn in a wider Brexit negotiation. She said it was her intention that EU citizens should remain but said their rights would be a factor in any talks.

Tories urged to offer assurances to EU citizens living in UK

The British government, including May, has been reluctant to give guarantees for EU citizens because it has yet to be given parallel assurances about the rights of UK citizens in the EU.

The campaign to get Britain out of the EU has called for an Australian-style, points-based immigration system to be applied to all migrant workers - not just those from outside the EU. So how does the UK's system - also based on points - differ from those of other countries? //&! Boris Johnson on Leave immigration plans [...] Can we have access to the single market without free movement, someone shouts as he leaves. "Absolutely," Mr Johnson replies. - http://bbc.in/297N0E7

Boris Johnson breaks silence to set out leadership platform
Johnson pledges points-based immigration system and continued UK-EU trade [...] Johnson claimed Britain will be able to introduce a points-based immigration system while maintaining access to the European single market. [...] “There will still be intense and intensifying European cooperation and partnership in a huge number of fields: the arts, the sciences, the universities, and on improving the environment. “EU citizens living in this country will have their rights fully protected, and the same goes for British citizens living in the EU. [...] “Yes, the Government will be able to take back democratic control of immigration policy, with a balanced and humane points-based system to suit the needs of business and industry. //&! http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/06/26/i-cannot-stress-too-much-that-britain-is-part-of-europe--and-alw/

Barack Obama says Brexit would leave UK 'back of the queue' on trade
US President Barack Obama has said Britain would go to the "back of the queue" for trade deals with the US if it votes to leave the European Union. He said Britain was at its best when "helping to lead" a strong EU and membership made it a "bigger player" on the world stage. He was speaking at the start of a three day visit to the UK. EU exit campaigners reacted angrily to his words, with Tory MP Dominic Raab dubbing him a "lame duck" president. //&! LEAVE CAMPAIGN ATTACK OBAMA - bbc.in/1WK7vsO - 'Deeply anti-democratic' - Mr Johnson, who is campaigning for Britain to leave the EU in the referendum on 23 June, has argued that America would never give up control of its own affairs in the way that the UK has done as a member of the EU.

Leave Campaign, so far, has failed to assure voters that we get through the quiet possible tubulences and uncertainty unharmed severely after 1-2 years. [ economic forecasts/predictions are Wall Streets cottage industry ] Brexit for sure would throw Osbornes plan for a surplus in 2020. ... brexit is about less regulation free trade low tariffs, 'get off the back of our City [London bank regulation]' [low tax, higher pay] George Osborne ... // banks have not voiced their voice loudly because that would be seen by people who bailed them out to tune of doubling the deficit, and still own bank shares ie loyds. it could be seen disingenuous, outrageous, as we are still in doldrums, paying off their debt, and suffering through austerity where the most vulnerable are cut away from society.

even if we leave, Brussels will say that we still have to have free movement of people (EEA) to access European Common Market, like Norway and Switzerland.

Universal credit cuts to lose low-income families up to £200 a month
[ UC is a backdoor welfare cut ] Changes to be introduced on Monday will push more low-paid working families into poverty, charities say. Tens of thousands of low-paid working families can expect to lose up to £200 a month as a result of changes to universal credit introduced on Monday – the first wave of £3bn in welfare cuts that will affect 1m households by 2020. [...] a full-time single parent would have to work a 14-month year. [...] The cuts stem from changes in the work allowance unveiled by the chancellor, George Osborne, in his summer budget a year ago. These drastically reduced the amount people can earn before low-wage top-ups are withdrawn at the rate of 65p per £1 earned.

Panama Papers Warum der Zynismus, mit dem die Leaks vielfach aufgenommen wurden, die falsche Reaktion auf die Enthüllungen ist [...] So wie es keine Neuigkeit ist, dass die globale Finanzelite sich eine juridisch-ökonomische Parallelwelt geschaffen hat. [...] Dennoch ist der fatalistische Zynismus, mit dem die Leaks vielerorts aufgenommen wurden, nicht nur falsch, sondern sogar gefährlich. Aus zwei Gründen: zum einen, weil der Zynismus eine Sprache ist, die der Neoliberalismus perfekt beherrscht. „Der Zyniker“, so schreibt etwa der Philosoph Franco Berardi, „ist ein leichter Schläfer: Er schläft traumlos und wacht auf, sobald die Macht ihn ruft.“ Wer sich in solcher Abgeklärtheit einrichtet, muss sich nicht wundern, wenn am Ende alles so bleibt, wie es ist.

Waiters And Bartenders Rise To Record, As Manufacturing Workers Drop Most Since 2009
On the surface, the March jobs reported was better than expected... except for manufacturing workers. As shown in the chart below, in the past month, a disturbing 29,000 manufacturing jobs were lost. This was the single biggest monthly drop in the series going back to December 2009. But not all is lost: as has been the case for virtually every month during the "recovery", virtually every laid off manufacturing worker could find a job as a waiter: in March, the workers in the "Food services and drinking places" category, aka waiters, bartenders and minimum wage line cooks, rose again to a new record high of 11,307,000 workers, an increase of 25K in the month, offsetting virtually all lost manufacturing jobs. This is how the two job series have looked since the start of 2015: 24k manufacturing jobs have been lost in the past 14 months compared to an increas of 365K food service workers.

Government planning to repeal animal welfare codes
Poultry industry to oversee chicken-farming standards as ministers move to create industry-led deregulation. Conservative ministers are planning to repeal an array of official guidance on animal welfare standards, starting with a move to put the code on chicken-farming into the hands of the poultry industry.

Liz Truss, the environment secretary, is overseeing moves to scrap the statutory codes on farm animal welfare and move to an “industry-led” guidance as part of her department’s deregulatory agenda. [ so industry funds its own regulatory body, lol! ] [...] Other sectors that could get control of their own guidance include the cattle, sheep and pig farming industries. //&!

The Privatising Industry in Europe
Do you wonder why the 'Troika' persists in its privatisation agenda despite the evidence of its failures and the growing economic and social costs?
The report “The Privatising Industry in Europe”, written by Sol Trumbo Vila and Matthijs Peters for the Transnational Institute, TNI, suggests two possible motives and shows who the ‪#‎BigWinners‬ of those privatisations are. - https://www.tni.org/en/publication/the-privatising-industry-in-europe - The rationale put forward by advocates of privatisation does not stand up to the evidence. Privatisation has failed to provide promised revenue as only profitable firms are being sold and consistently at undervalued prices. Meanwhile the latest research by the IMF and by European universities show that there is no evidence that the privatised firms are more efficient than state-owned firms. [...] Privatisation in Europe has encouraged a growth in corruption,
