Prescribed Pain by Corporate America
Aljazeera / Cliff Schecter

Greed has become a foundational structure of the US economy - exemplified by the pharmaceutical industry.

During the ultimate scene of betrayal in the movie Wall Street, a young stockbroker named Bud Fox learns that his idol, the golden-calf worshipping Gordon Gekko, has not only lied to him but left his father’s company exposed to the whims and hunger of the wolves of Wall Street. In a climactic moment, Fox asks Gekko, “how much is enough? How many yachts can you water ski behind?”
