"Who is John Galt?"
The main question for public health ought to be how did we arrive at a place where closing a single plant can endanger so many people? The answer is that any company brave, or foolish, enough to make vaccines has had to run an obstacle course of price controls, regulation and tort lawyers. Until Congress and federal officials come to grips with these fundamental problems, life-threatening vaccine shortages will continue to occur.The article goes on to out line other vaccines that are produced by from one (1) to three (3) drug companies.
Remember, in Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, how CEO's, Presidents, Owners walked away from their businesses after they were harrassed in the same way they are today. When asked why this was happening, the answer was "Who is John Galt?" This most prophetic novel took 10 to 12 years to write published in 1957.
Atlas Shrugged is the astounding story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world--and did. Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged stretches the boundaries further than any book you have ever read. It is a mystery, not about the murder of a man's body, but about the murder--and rebirth--of man's spirit.Mover Mike
