There are a lot of ways to make money in that industry. Why would aggressively self funding a race to develop a vaccine definitely me one they would pursue? Isnít it true that they might lose?
    Did he say anything about the speed of the development? I think he was just saying that drug companies can see a market that needs to be filled.

    I'm not against the public funded incentive by the way, I can just see his point.

    Okay. I don't know that it's true that public funding makes it faster, but that's certainly an argument to make.

    I certainly don't know what's 'right' in all this, but another thing to remembe here is that the government and these pharma labs would have to have formed a partnership of sorts, with those labs receiving data from the government and likely sharing some back...........that wouldn't likely be happening with most drugs these companies develop.

    No, thatís what what I sense from so many who allegedly hate government interference. They hate it until it impacts something that benefits them.

    While true, that partnership doesn't require money go from the government to the lab.

    Because there are billions of dollars to made. Do I really have to explain that? This is the mother of all vaccines and not only is there an incentive to develop one, there's an incentive to be first.

    I donít think itís a sure fire investment. your company might not come in first. Your company might not develop something profits that them at all. I am generally quicker to spend someone elseís money then my own. Maybe you should explain it.
