Decadent Pharmaceutical Companies


Ever wondered why your medicine was so blatantly ridiculously expensive, here's the reason why.

They build palaces not factories.

The elitist CEO's work palaces that make the palaces of old look like hovels.

Harbin Pharmaceuticals made nearly 2 trillion Chinese Yuan = 313.29400 billion U.S. dollars profits last year.

Harbin Pharmaceuticals Sixth Pharmaceuticals Plant’s luxurious palace explodes online, gold foil inlaid hallways and corridors

Recently, the official website of the Harbin Pharmaceuticals Group’s Sixth Pharmaceuticals Plant published a set of photographs showing the internal environment [at the plant] with the photographs showing that its building is decorated in the style of Versailles, with fully carved wood corridors, gold foil inlays, and every angel lifelike and unique.

CCTV anchor Li Xiaoming said on his weibo: Initial reaction, Harbin Pharmaceuticals Six is a state-owned enterprise. According to Ministry of Finance data, state-owned enterprises made profits of nearly 2 trillion yuan, but only turned over about 5% as “bonuses/dividends”. It is said that state-owned enterprises are the people’s enterprises, so the people should know how the enterprises’ money is used. This “palace”, would the people be delighted to see it?

All right, I know I'm bending the topic a little, but please read the source article. Especially note the first dozen or so comments (they appear to be from Chinese citizens) reacting to the article. I wondered how the people of China would react to this story. The article must not be on a state-controlled website.

My Pharmacist once confided in me that most drugs have a 1000% mark-up on price. She also told me that American Pharmacies are prevented from buying drugs from cheaper places by law. I found that repugnant at the time, and still do.
