It lost so much money, basically because it can’t anymore ask the insane prices that drug pushers were used to.
Many people will lose their jobs, and I’m not happy about that, but the stockholders of course – as saintly Capitalism “demands” – only will see their profits slump a little.
Government and trade unions will demand more of an investors’ loss in exchange for less of a jobs loss and they are right. But in the end of the day, fairness and honesty should demand that also is noted that it might be morally preferable not to work for immoral business.
As unhappy as I am about people losing their jobs, as happy I am about big pharma (that they produce some life-saving medication is no excuse for the pain killers and other debilitating psychopharmaceutical drugs), the arms industry and military (that some of them are defensive are no excuse for all the weapons and wars), the porno industry (degrading the people staring at it even more than those before the lens), the tobacco industry (how it this ever legal?), the alcohol lobby (how is this even legal?), the meat industry (how is it still legal to sell this as healthy?), polluters (wake up – time is running out for nature), the entertainment industry (we really need to kill time?), binary options trading, banking and the stock exchange (you can only win through others losing their fair share) losing their grip on our population, health and economy.
When they milk us less, we can work less hours and still have energy to be activists and volunteers, working for a better work in our free time.
Over time, bad news can become very good news, really.
