US Cell Phone Plans Among World's Most Expensive

rant-mode-on Re:Stupid prices (827 comments)

Did you happen to know that Pharma spends more for advertising in the US than R&D?

Its worse than just advertising, its marketing in general: which includes buying politicians, doctors and paying hospitals to give away "free" samples of baby formula to parents who are then told "don't change the formula, it can be bad for your baby". And then there is all the advertising. Frequently this is for new drugs that aren't as good as existing ones but of course we're expecting that the newer the better, and so are the doctors that don't do their homework too.

We're screwed. We know we're screwed, and there is nothing we can do about it.
