Movie & Discussion: Big Pharma – Market Failure

Big Pharma: Market Failure, Wednesday January 17, 2018 at 6:15. Please arrive before start-time to allow for enough time for discussion. Please join the BUC Social Action Committee and representatives from the Illinois Single Payer Coalition for an hour-long documentary and guided discussion about health care.
We will watch Big Pharma – Market Failure, a documentary that makes an effective business case for realizable change. It digs deep to answer key questions. How much do pharma companies really spend on research and development of truly innovative drugs? Do “free market” principles impact on drug prices and help control cost? Do the normal rules of business apply to the pharma industry? How do TV ads impact consumers and doctors?
Big Pharma: Market Failure proposes a solution that makes business sense for employers and health sense for employees. It is a compelling drama that reveals the truth of pharma cost and what we can do about it.
