Μέρος 5ο - Το παράπλευρο σκάνδαλο και οι αυθαίρετες τιμολογήσεις

Το μεγαλύτερο έμμεσο σκάνδαλο και η αποτυχία των μέτρων των μνημονίων είναι ότι δεν μειώθηκε η κατανάλωση σε κουτιά φαρμάκων πρωτότυπων έναντι των γενόσημων.

Η δημόσια φαρμακευτική δαπάνη είναι κουτιά επί μέση τιμή. Και πως να μειωθεί όταν δεν υπάρχει πλαίσιο ελέγχου της συνταγογράφησης. Οταν δεν θωρακίζεται το σύστημα με θεραπευτικά πρωτόκολλα, που διαχρονικά διαφήμιζαν οι προηγούμενες κυβερνήσεις αλλά ποτέ όμως δεν ενσωμάτωσαν στην ηλεκτρονική συνταγογράφηση. Σήμερα το υπουργείο Υγείας έχει κλειδώσει 15 θεραπευτικά πρωτόκολλα από τα συνολικά 25 που έχουν ενσωματωθεί και ετοιμάζονται άλλα 20, όπως δήλωσε πρόσφατα ο υπουργός Υγείας Ανδρέας Ξανθός.

Η έλλειψη ελέγχου σε συνδυασμό με τις αυθαίρετες τιμολογήσεις των πολυεθνικών του φαρμάκου και μη έχοντας διαπραγματευτική ικανότητα είναι ένα μείγμα εκρηκτικό.

Η δημιουργία Επιτροπής των χωρών του Ευρωπαϊκού Νότου για τη διαπραγμάτευση των τιμών των καινοτόμων φαρμάκων και η δημιουργία Επιτροπής Αξιολόγησης και Τεχνολογίας (ΗTA) του Ανδρέα Ξανθού είναι θεσμικές παρεμβάσεις προς την κατεύθυνση της οχύρωσης του συστήματος σε επίπεδο τιμολόγησης και διαπραγμάτευσης τιμών.

Ενδεικτικά αναφέρουμε το παράδειγμα του Sintrom και του Xarelto που αδειοδοτήθηκε επί εποχής Αδωνη.

Η αντιπηκτική θεραπεία χρόνια ολόκληρα σε όλο τον κόσμο ήταν το Sintrom, το οποίο κοστίζει δύο ευρώ, της Ciba-Geigy, της μητέρας εταιρείας, μαζί με τη Sandoz, της Novartis.

To 2013 αδειοδοτείται το Xarelto της Bayer και παίρνει τιμή 68 ευρώ στη χώρα μας. Το Sintrom, «αρχαίο» θαυματουργό φάρμακο, είναι αντιθρομβωτικό. Το Xarelto βγήκε με ένδειξη την αποφυγή θρομβώσεων μετά από χειρουργεία στα οστά. Το ότι είναι για χειρουργεία στα οστά δεν λέει τίποτα. Το προώθησε η φαρμακευτική εταιρεία, το πήραν οι γιατροί και τον επόμενο χρόνο βγήκε πρώτο φάρμακο σε δαπάνες στην Ελλάδα. Το κόστος του, 30 φορές πάνω από την παλιά κλασική συνταγή.

Πρόκειται για τη μεγαλύτερη επιτυχία της Bayer, για την οποία ακόμα χτυπάει το κεφάλι της η Novartis γιατί το ινστιτούτο που το έβγαλε απευθύνθηκε πρώτα σε εκείνη. Με το Xarelto η Bayer έκανε παγκόσμια επιτυχία, με πρωταθλήτρια τη χώρα μας.

  1. Mueller's indictments are not "Russia-Gate". This is Russia-Gate; Murder-Gate:
    John Brennan is Murdering, Torturous Thief (amongst this entire “intelligence” community).
    Russia-Gate; Murder-Gate
    These people have tried to kill me multiple times.
    I continue to be tortured and abused.
    They have tried to Frame me as “Crazy” — I am the furthest thing from it and this is the unequivocal truth!
    There are countless murders.
    Children have been exploited; Families have been destroyed.
    Public Funds were stolen.
    They have lined their pockets with my intellectual property and with agendas of murder (including mine).
    These people have and continue to steal my intellectual property worth Trillions and obscure my discoveries.
    The people implicated in this are the purported leaders of our Nation.
    This is the truth and the starting point beginning/source of “Russia-Gate”.
    This includes the former director of the CIA et al.
    This entire US Government has been engaged and I have all the substantiating evidence to prove it (see below).
    As I have stated numerous times: I am begging for my life.
    Further your families, their lives, their freedom, and our United States of America depends on Public exposure and your representation.
    I need YOUR LEGAL HELP and/or Representation NOW!!!
    This is life and death and the outcome of our United States and our Earth “The Free World” depends on this.
    Share everywhere, help me expose these murdering, torturous thieves.
    When I have Justice, I will have the platform to ensure the Legislation is passed and enforced.
    I own a 3.6 Trillion Dollar Quantum Technological Revolution that I will not commence (establish my business) until I have achieved Justice, and my fellow Americans and Citizens of this Earth are free people (again). Democracy restored.
    Why would any of these people care? This apparatus of Evil has fleeced our U.S. Government (20 Trillion+ in debt), and I possess the intellectual property (Quantum Technological Revolution) to ensure the sustainment of our United States (tax dollars alone, not including the economics that go along with it).
    Further, when Justice has been achieved and all this has been exposed – trials complete – my business (BASRC) is an equal opportunity employer and I will ENFORCE Gender Equality. At no point in time will my Corporation have more than +/- 55% Men or Women within it. There will be ZERO Discrimination of any type.
    This is the truth; this is “Russia-Gate”.
    I need your help if for any other reason because you care about your children, grandchildren, Democracy, our United States of America, our Earth, and Humanity.
    I need your help now!!!

Greece is about to become the blueprint for modern feudalism

globinfo freexchange
After almost ten years of an unprecedented crisis, Greece has been trapped into an ongoing, slow motion recession. The economy still struggling hard to recover, with unemployment and national debt being permanently in a red alarm mode.
As has been already pointed out, the result of the recent Greek national elections could be characterized "paradoxical" mainly for two reasons: 
First, the voters gave a clear governmental order to one of the traditional powers of the old political system, which are highly responsible for the Greek crisis that erupted in 2010. Several top names of the new government, and even New Democracy leader, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, have been accused of being involved in various corruption scandals, in the not so distant past.

Second, the fact that the voters elected perhaps the most fanatically neoliberal government ever. This means that Mitsotakis administration is expected to implement the brutal neoliberal policies imposed by Greece&…

How Joe Biden’s privatization plans helped doom Latin America and fuel the migration crisis

On the campaign trail, Joe Biden has boasted of his role in transforming Colombia and Central America through ambitious economic and security programs. Colombians and Hondurans tell The Grayzone about the damage his plans did to their societies.
by Max Blumenthal
Part 8 - Gutting public healthcare, driving more migration
The Alliance for Prosperity also commissioned the privatization of health services through a deceptively named program called the Social Protection Framework Law, or la Ley Marco de Protección Social.

Promoted by Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández as a needed reform, the scheme was advanced through a classic shock doctrine-style episode: In 2015, close associates of Hernández siphoned some $300 million from the Honduran Institute for Social Services (IHSS) into private businesses, starving hospitals of supplies and causing several thousand excess deaths, mostly among the poor.
With the medical sector in shambles, Hondurans were then forced to seek healthcare from …

As Boris Johnson unleashes ultimate threat against Bremain capitalist faction, the British working class is suddenly in front of a unique opportunity

globinfo freexchange

In the merciless endo-capitalist war around Brexit, Boris Johnson decided to unleash the ultimate threat against Bremain capitalist faction. That is, a snap election with the 'danger' of a Labour victory under Jeremy Corbyn, which would be neoliberal capitalists' worst nightmare.
As already pointed out, despite the capitalist civil war, both major factions of the British capital remain deeply neoliberal in their ideological core. And therefore, both factions see a potential Labour government under Jeremy Corbyn, as a major threat.
Indeed, as ZeroHedgereported
As Prime Minister Boris Johnson faces the prospect of his rule being cut short, wealthy Britons have a message for Johnson's most likely successor: A 'no deal' Brexit makes no difference to them. But if Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn becomes PM, they will flee in droves, taking their money with them

Tucker Carlson accidentally promotes one of the most anti-capitalist, real-Left positions!

globinfo freexchange 
We wouldn't believe it if we wouldn't have seen it and hear it with our own eyes and ears, but the following phrase came out from Tucker Carlson's mouth:

                    Every minute you are angry about race, is a minute you are not thinking about class, which, of course, is the real divide in this country. Working class people of all colors have a lot more in common - infinitely more in common with each other, than they do with some overpaid MSNBC anchor. And if you are allowed to think about that for long enough, you might start get unauthorized ideas about economics. And that would be disruptive to a very lucrative status quo. So, they whip you into a frenzy of racial fear so that it never enters your mind. It's a diversion. Everyone hates each other, they get to keep their money.
Here's why they're pushing racial division: so you won't notice the real divide, which is economic. pic.twitter.com/ZVLvQn2u9O — Tucker Carlson (@Tuck…

Manufacturing uncritical thinking

by system failure
I was thinking about writing something related to a certain behavioural pattern that we often meet in the mainstream media journalist army. I was inspired by the impressively loud example of The New York Times' Bari Weiss, and how it was presented by Jimmy Dore in his show.


During this particular discussion with Joe Rogan, Weiss rushed to paint US presidential candidate, Tulsi Gabbard, as an "Assad toady", without even knowing what the characterization means. As Dore aptly pointed out: "That's what's called a 'received opinion'. So, it's not her own opinion. She has heard other people in her neoliberal bubble say that stuff, so she just repeats it. She doesn't even know what the insult means."
Ben Norton wrote on Twitter: "Neocon NY Times columnist Bari Weiss smeared Tulsi Gabbard (who bravely opposed regime change and US support for Salafi-jihadist contras) as an "Assad toady," then couldn't spell/de…

Bernie finally declares war on neoliberal fascists who destroy the planet

Bernie Sanders proved again why he should be the next president of the United States. This time, he declared war on the neoliberal fascists who are destroying the planet on behalf of the corporate beasts.
Bernie tweeted:

Καταιγίδα επιχειρήσεων αποπροσανατολισμού από το Μητσοτακικό καθεστώς με τη βοήθεια της τραπεζομιντιακής χούντας

globinfo freexchange

Ο μηχανισμός του εγχώριου νεοφιλελεύθερου καθεστώτος επιδόθηκε τις τελευταίες μέρες σε έναν καταιγισμό επιχειρήσεων αποπροσανατολισμού προς τέρψιν του πόπολου, το οποίο έδωσε αυτοδυναμία στην πολιτική του συνιστώσα. Δηλαδή, στη χειρότερη δεξιά της μεταπολίτευσης.
Μετά το ταξίδι Μητσοτάκη στη Γαλλία, όπου είδαμε ένα χιλιοπαιγμένο έργο, το σόου του αποπροσανατολισμού ξεκίνησε από το Μάτι. Εκεί είχαμε ένα διπλό χτύπημα. Από τη μια τον Μητσοτάκη να ποζάρει στα καμμένα, διατυμπανίζοντας τη δήθεν αποτελεσματική του κυβέρνηση. Από την άλλη, την διαφήμιση των "καλών ιδιωτών", οι οποίοι ως καλοί Σαμαρείτες, ανέλαβαν δήθεν αφιλοκερδώς (Αφιλοκερδώς ΑΕ, όπως έλεγε και ο αξέχαστος Τζιμάκος), να καθαρίσουν την περιοχή από την επικίνδυνη καύσιμη ύλη.
Αμέσως μετά, απολαύσαμε άλλη μια κωμωδία από τις δυνάμεις καταστολής που έκαναν έφοδο στα Εξάρχεια για να τα "καθαρίσουν" από τους μετανάστες. Οι νεοφιλέλεδες της δεξιάς και τα ακροδεξιά δεκανίκια τους είναι μανο…

Citibank blocks funds for insulin: more than 450,000 Venezuelans affected

The US bank Citibank blocked, in August this year, part of the funds destined to import 300 thousand doses of insulin, a criminal act that affects more than 450 thousand patients, the Venezuelan Ministry of Economy and Finance reported.

On the other hand, the BSN Medical laboratory, based in Colombia, after receiving payment for the purchase of 2 million units of antimalarial treatment, denied the clearance of the drugs.
The ministry indicated that this fact caused the Swiss bank UBS AG to block the transactions made by the country with the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), destined for the purchase of vaccines for the immunization program.
Given this circumstance, Venezuela and PAHO sought alternatives with banks from other countries, although this situation led to a 4 month delay in the immunization program.

The national government also revealed that other pharmaceutical transnationals such as Pfizer and Novartis refuse to sell medicines, reagents and supplies to Venezuela.

The untold Socialist history of the United States

globinfo freexchange

Abby Martin spoke with renowned Marxist Economist Richard Wolff to discuss the growing popularity of Socialism under Trump and its historical roots in America, misconceptions about Russia and China’s economic success and Marx’s theory of alienation and monopoly capitalism.

Wolff explains:

A hundred years ago, 1916 to be precise, was the first time that the Socialist Party of America put forward a candidate for president. His name was Allan Benson and he ran for president a hundred years ago and he got 600,000 votes in the United States. That worked out to three percent of the vote.
The Socialist Party thought that was a good beginning, so they ran again four years later, in 1920, little less than a hundred years ago, and they had a different candidate. A man named Eugene Victor Debs, a head of the railway Workers Union, very good orator. And he did better. He got 900,000 votes. That's a 50% increase in four years, four percent of the total vote.
Four yea…
