9 Big Pharma rip-offs 'worse than Martin Shkreli' Published time: 9 Apr, 2016 20:32 Get short URL © Srdjan Zivulovic © Srdjan Zivulovic / Reuters 3091 While “America’s most hated man,” Martin Shkreli, may be the poster boy for Big Pharma gypping its patients, he’s not the only one to charge ridiculous prices for prescription drugs. According to the World Health Organization, the global drug industry generates $300 billion a year with a whopping profit margin of about 30 percent, and turnover is expected to rise to $400 billion within three years. However, it seems that drug makers are not content with their huge spoils, as they continue to jack up ...

FDA changes drug review rules to challenge Martin Shkreli-like medicine monopolies Published time: 16 Mar, 2016 02:59 © Srdjan Zivulovic / Reuters The US drug regulator is paving a fast-track for generic remedies to market while also sealing a loophole, used by pharmaceutical executives like Martin Shkreli, to profit from jacked-up prices on exclusive medicines. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is now granting an “expedited review” to generic drugs producers that would compete with brand-named treatments, currently produced by only one manufacturer. The new rule is going to make an approval process faster for off-patent producers, which potentially means that ...

"Whee! This Investing Stuff Is Easy®" How It's Really Done March 2, 2016 By: The Mogambo Guru In the old days, you would gradually provide for your retirement by saving money, either stashing cash under the floorboards or at a bank. By the term “in old days”, I actually DO mean all the way back to dinosaurs, who did NOT save for their retirements (which you can easily prove for yourself by examining the fossil record), and they all died penniless. Let that be a lesson to you. Anyway, the bank at which you saved towards retirement would pay you somepiddly rate of interest that at least offset the rate of inflation, and little by little your little stash ...

A drone has successfully delivered a package to a residential location in a small Nevada town in what its maker and the governor of the state said Friday was the first fully autonomous urban drone delivery in the U.S. Flirtey CEO Matt Sweeney said the six-rotor drone flew about a half-mile along a pre-programmed delivery route on March 10 and lowered the package outside a vacant residence in an uninhabited area of Hawthorne, southeast of Reno. The route was established using GPS. A pilot and visual observers were on standby during the flight but weren't needed, Sweeney said. He said the package included bottled water, food and a first-aid kit. "Conducting the first drone ...

Largest U.S. refinery now belongs to Saudi Arabia Charles Kennedy, Royal Dutch Shell and Saudi Aramco appear to be getting a divorce, breaking up their joint venture in U.S.-based refining assets. The two companies joined together to create Motiva Enterprises LLC in 1998, a 50-50 joint venture that operated three refineries on the U.S. Gulf Coast. But Shell and Saudi Aramco have seen their interests head in different directions. "It is now time for the partners to pursue their independent downstream goals," said Abdulrahman Al-Wuhaib, a senior vice president of Saudi Aramco’s downstream unit. Reuters reported that the relationship started to fray after Motiva announced a ...

The United States Revokes Scientology’s Tax-Exempt Status

In a unanimous decision by the Supreme Court today, the eight justices ruled in favor of revoking the Church of Scientology’s tax-exempt status in the United States. Under the ruling, Scientology will still be able to operate as a business but no longer as a non-profit religious organization. The case was brought forward by the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Division after concluding a two-year-long investigation into the inner workings of Scientology. The investigation, along with an extensive audit, found the group to be a “criminal operation with a sole purpose of making money”. The eight justices agreed with the IRS and its findings that Scientology was ...

The Financial System Is A Larger Threat Than Terrorism By Paul Craig Roberts March 08, 2016 "Information Clearing House" - In the 21st century Americans have been distracted by the hyper-expensive “war on terror.” Trillions of dollars have been added to the taxpayers’ burden and many billions of dollars in profits to the military/security complex in order to combat insignificant foreign “threats,” such as the Taliban, that remain undefeated after 15 years. All this time the financial system, working hand-in-hand with policymakers, has done more damage to Americans than terrorists could possibly inflict. The purpose of the Federal Reserve and US ...

Encryption and stopping Trump among topics discussed Some of the most powerful people in the technology industry met with Republican senators, party officials, and assorted billionaires on a private island last weekend, the Huffington Post reports, with the main topic of conversation being the rise of Donald Trump, and how best to stop him. Among those attending the event — the American Enterprise Institute's World Forum — were Apple CEO Tim Cook, Tesla and SpaceX boss Elon Musk, and Google co-founder Larry Page.

Mitt Romney Is The Real Super-Fraud: Here’s The Proof, Chapter And Verse

Now that’s a screaming case of the pot calling the kettle black if there ever was one. Mitt Romney has lashed out at The Donald for being a “phony and fraud”, but consider this. During his 16-years at Bain Capital, fully one-fourth or $600 million of the firms cumulative $2.5 billion of profits were scalped from companies which went bankrupt soon after Mitt and his partners got out of town with the loot. No wonder the American voters did not believe him when he claimed to be the “job creator”! Yes, the GOP establishment’s putative “jobs” candidate from 2012 was never really a businessman at all. He was an LBO strip-mining artist who rode the first ...

The Catholic Church does not want people to donate "dirty money" earned by abusing low-paid workers, Pope Francis said on Wednesday."Some donors come to the Church offering profits from the blood of people who have been exploited, mistreated, enslaved with badly paid work," Francis said during his regular weekly audience with pilgrims at the Vatican."I will say to them: 'Please take your money away, burn it'," said Francis, who has made safeguarding the poor and cleaning up Vatican finances central tenets of his papacy."The people of God... do not need dirty money, they need hearts that are open to God's mercy," he said.The pope has ...

U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer wants to require the Federal Aviation Administration to establish seat-size standards for commercial airlines, which he says now force passengers to sit on planes "like sardines." The New York Democrat told The Associated Press the airlines have been slowly cutting down legroom and seat width. "One of the most vexing things when you travel on an airplane is there's almost no legroom on your standard flight," Schumer said. "There's been constant shrinkage by the airlines." He said he will add an amendment to the FAA Reauthorization Bill that is pending before Congress that would require the agency to set the seat-size ...

Beijing has knocked New York out of the top spot for cities with the most billionaires. The Chinese capital added an incredible 32 billionaires to its ranks last year, bringing the city's total to 100, according to Hurun Report's latest global rich list. New York, which has led the ranking for years, has 95 billionaires. "Despite its own slowdown and falling stock markets, China minted more new billionaires than any other country in the world last year, mainly on the back of new [share] listings," said Rupert Hoogewerf, chairman of Hurun Report. Moscow (66), Hong Kong (64) and Shanghai (50) rounded out the top five cities by number of billionaires. Five of the top 10 ...

In this case, Donald Trump’s call to audit the Federal Reserve is dead on correct. Most Americans don’t realize this, but the Federal Reserve has far more power over the economy than anyone else does – including Barack Obama. Financial markets all over the planet gyrate wildly at the smallest comment from Fed officials, and virtually every boom and bust cycle over the past 100 years can be traced directly back to ...

1 in 4 Americans on verge of financial ruin By Catey Hill Published: Feb 23, 2016 5:31 a.m. ET The rich keep getting richer. The rest of us aren’t so lucky. According to a survey released Tuesday by Bankrate.com of more than 1,000 adults, nearly one in four Americans have credit card debt that exceeds their emergency fund or savings. And that’s partially because many people, in addition to their debt, don’t have a dime in their emergency fund at all: another Bankrate survey released earlier this year found that 29% of Americans have no emergency savings at all. These numbers mean that many Americans are “teetering on the edge of financial disaster,” says ...

 Last February, the Federal Communications Commission made history by taking sweeping action to promote a fast, fair, and open internet. Their net neutrality ruling made the most headlines, but a second ruling preventing states from blocking localities seeking to develop municipal broadband was nearly as huge. Both have been fought tooth and nail—and taken to court—by industry. That's made Chattanooga, Tennessee, ground zero in a war financed by AT&T. Chattanooga, Tenn., is more than 2,400 miles from Silicon Valley, but residents of the Southern city have access to broadband that's 50 times faster than the majority of Internet connections in ...

Why Glenn Beck’s Media Empire Is Burning Down

Glenn Beck was thanked by Ted Cruz in his Iowa victory speech, but for all his ‘mad genius,’ the right-wing media firebrand’s media company has become an abyss of backbiting and paranoia. Glenn Beck is beset by apocalyptic visions, sinister conspiracy theories, mind-blowing prophecies, mysterious illnesses, miraculous cures, and, yes, copious waterworks. But of all of the hobgoblins fluttering through his mind, consistency isn’t one of them. Beck regularly contradicts himself in word and deed—a trait that his less charitable associates call hypocrisy. For instance, mere months after announcing, with typically messianic zeal, that he was heartily sick of politics ...

62 People Have More Wealth than Half the World, Top 1% Have More than All of Us

Just 62 individuals now hold the same amount of wealth as 3.6 billion people, the bottom half of the entire planet — a shocking statistic made even more alarming when considering as recently as 2010, that same half of all wealth was held by 388 people. Now, 80 billionaires collectively hold over $2 trillion, while the bottom half has lost $1 trillion of their wealth — in just five years. A new report published Monday by Oxfam International — tellingly titled, An Economy For The 1% — reveals a number of jaw-dropping figures that illustrate the struggles resultant from such an exponential increase in the stratification of wealth.

In an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer on Monday, Paul said he would boycott the Fox Business debate and called the network's decision a "mistake.""It's a mistake because the thing is we actually have been in the top five or six in most of the recent polls. In fact, last week in a national poll we were just one point out of fourth place. So I think it's a mistake to try to exclude me from the ...

Brothel owner Dennis Hof announced Friday he would be running as a Libertarian for the Nevada Senate seat currently occupied by outgoing Sen. Greg Brower, R-Reno. Hof was originally considering running for U.S. Senate, but said he did not want to kowtow to special interests for money. “You just can’t get the $5 million to 10 million without whoring yourself out and I’m not going to do that,” he said. “There’s a lot of people willing to give me money, but there’s a payback.

Then he built Stellar as a better Ripple. And he’s not the only one. Now, there’s a movement to create a technology that would let all these online ledgers talk to one another, that would let you send money between these systems.
