Emerging R&D Centers in China and India

New research sponsored by the Kauffman Foundation depicts the rise of China
and India as emerging powers in pharmaceuticals research and development.
The study is the first in a series of reports examining the implications of
the rapid globalization of innovation. It is based on interviews with
leading Chinese and Indian executives who note that R&D globalization is
occurring much faster than many people realize. Leading Big Pharma firms,
like Merck and Eli Lilly, now have a heavy reliance on Indian and Chinese
partners for high value R&D. The researchers conclude that it is too early
to determine whether India and China will become major sources of new drugs.
Local firms lack capital and distribution channels and are thus heavily
reliant on partnerships with existing global market leaders. However, both
countries are making impressive strides in pharmaceutical R&D and will
likely be major industry players in the future.

Market?, by Vivek Wadha. 

 

Manufacturing and clerical services have been outsourced; now support for
non-military professional services and R&D is fleeing American institutions.


What is wrong with our elected officials? What is wrong with the leaders of
our great institutions who are allowing this to happen on their watch?

Our entrenched leadership in the Florida Legislature and our representative
in the US House lavish tax breaks and subsidies on real estate speculators
who destroy the productivity of agricultural land and ecosystems. They grab
headlines by advocating Pollyanna get-rich quick oil drilling schemes while
failing to support development and implementation of real solutions. Policy,
financial incentives and funding to stimulate and sustain investment in more
sustainable agriculture, waste management, energy systems and community
development is rejected. Funding for R&D and education is slashed.

The Florida legislature and administrators of the Florida University System
respond by cutting budgets and motivating faculty to seek better jobs
elsewhere.

People are deemed insane when they make the same harmful mistakes over and
over and over and over again; when they fail to learn and to act
responsibly.

Are our public officials insane or just ignorant?

Why is so hard for people to understand current behavior and economic policy
is NOT in their self-interest? That changes to more sustainable lifestyles
and behaviors should not be feared?

What is wrong with economists who know the cost of everything but discount
the consequences of future costs to zero? Educators who cave in to those who
ignore the value of education and knowledge?

Professionals who use their knowledge to make a profit today while ignoring
longer-term cost?

Taxpayers who fail to support education and blame teachers and teachers
unions for the failure of schools?

What is wrong with people who focus on short-term profit created by wasteful
and inefficient uses of people, resources and, yes, money?

We need enlightened leaders and responsible citizens; people who are not
afraid of the future; people who are willing to take risk and embrace
positive change.

Your elected leaders in Tallahassee and Washington are NOT reading this
list-serve.

Most do NOT care about solving these challenging problems in a responsible
and timely fashion. They are willing to stick their collective
heads-in-the-sand and pretend that our food, fuel, feed and fiber supply and
allocation challenges will be solved by the "free-market" while they
continue to subsidize waste and inefficiency and enjoy the perks of
business-as-usual.

We all know that there is no such thing as a free lunch. It is past time for
YOU to tell your elected officials that his free-ride on your tax money is
over.

We know that more sustainable efficient, cleaner, safer, renewable solutions
are available and that these solutions are NOT being developed and
implemented throughout the community. Research the issues you care about and
find out why policy is failing to support implementation of more sustainable
solutions.

Do something to force change - start talking to your elected representatives
in your City and County Commissions, in the Florida House and Senate and in
the US House of Representatives.

Tell them your story - and do not stop until they agree to do what YOU want
them to do.
