10. The coalition you concieve would be beautiful to behold.

Palast covered the issue of Brazil, India, and Argentina making AIDS drugs dirt-cheap for Southern Africa in the '90's pandemic, and the subsequent WTO Trade Related Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) attempts to reign those countries in, on behalf of big PHARMA profits ("The Best Democracy Money Can Buy" , pp 184 - 6.) He also mentioned that Glaxo's 'intellectual property' was in fact created by a professor using US taxpayer money, not by Glaxo paying big bucks for research.
