John Mack attributes one of my contributors words to me. So first some remedial education. When I say that this is The Industry Veteran’s views on XYZ, and here are The Veteran’s words, and I introduce that in an indented paragraph, I mean that a guy calling himself The Industry Veteran wrote it and he is NOT me. If an article appears here without such a paragraph you can assume that I wrote it. Sorry to be pedantic, but my desire to have differing view-points up here why this is called The Health Care Blog and not Matthew Holt shoots his mouth off about health care. It’s the same theory as the New York Times having Paul Krugman and David Brooks both writing op-eds. I have enough opinions of my own without wishing to have other people’s attributed to me–even if I agree! And just to prove it I’ll have another article from Eric Novack up here very soon..
Meanwhile, what John has to say about the Veteran’s words is pretty interesting. He notes that the tone set by pharma comes from the top, and I think that the Veteran would agree.
