quote:Perpetual decline or persistent dominance? Uncovering Anglo-America’s true structural power in global finance
The findings of this article show that Anglo-America clearly dominates the structure of global finance
with market shares in eight key segments between 43 per cent and 75 per cent. Hence, Anglo-America
exerts dominant structural power in global finance. Arguably, today Anglo-American global finance –
a complex amalgam of public and private authority – permeates almost every political economy in the
world and influences political and economic decision-making. At least in the OECD-world, finance has
become the ‘super-structure’, increasingly dominating the structures of production and knowledge
(though not necessarily security). The global financial crisis, which developed in Anglo-America and
then spread internationally, certainly has led to growing scepticism and even resistance against the
liberal Anglo-American model of global finance amongst citizens and politicians in a number of
countries.95 However, business and financial elites of most countries are still strongly attracted towards
Anglo-American markets and corporations. Once countries have integrated themselves into the open
international financial order created and dominated by Anglo-America it becomes extremely costly to
extricate themselves from it.
Het artikel gaat verder.quote:First came Martin Shkreli, the brash young pharmaceutical entrepreneur who raised the price for an AIDS treatment by 5,000 percent. Then, Heather Bresch, the CEO of Mylan, who oversaw the price hike for its signature Epi-Pen to more than $600 for a twin-pack, though its active ingredient costs pennies by comparison.
Now a small Virginia company called Kaleo is joining their ranks. It makes an injector device that is suddenly in demand because of the nation’s epidemic use of opioids, a class of drugs that includes heavy painkillers and heroin.
Called Evzio, it is used to deliver naloxone, a life-saving antidote to overdoses of opioids. More than 33,000 people are believed to have died from such overdoses in 2015. And as demand for Kaleo’s product has grown, the privately held firm has raised its twin-pack price to $4,500, from $690 in 2014.
Founded by twin brothers Eric and Evan Edwards, 36, the company first sought to develop an Epi-Pen competitor, thanks to their own food allergies.
Now, they’ve taken that model and marketed it for a major public health crisis. It’s another auto-injector that delivers an inexpensive medicine.
One difference, though, is that Evzio talks users through the process as they inject naloxone. The company says the talking device is worth the price because it can guide anyone to jab an overdose victim correctly, leave the needle in for the right amount of time and potentially save his or her life.
According to Food and Drug Administration estimates, the Kaleo product, which won federal approval in 2014, accounted for nearly 20 percent of the naloxone dispensed through retail outlets between 2015 and 2016, and for nearly half of all naloxone products prescribed to patients between ages 40 and 64—the group that comprises the bulk of naloxone users.
And the cost of generic, injectable naloxone—which has been on the market since 1971—has been climbing. A 10-mililiter vial sold by one of the dominant vendors costs close to $150, more than double its price from even a few years ago, and far beyond the production costs of the naloxone chemical, researchers say. The other common injectable, which comes in a smaller but more potent dose, costs closer to $40, still about double its 2009 cost.
Still, experts say the device’s price surge is way out of step with production costs, and a needless drain on health-care resources.
“There’s absolutely nothing that warrants them charging what they’re charging,” said Leo Beletsky, an associate professor of law and health sciences at Northeastern University in Boston.
Kaleo, which is trying to blunt the pricing backlash and turn Evzio into the trusted brand, is dispensing its device for free—to cities, first responders and drug treatment programs. Such donations were also essential to the Epi-Pen’s business strategy.
The device has been invaluable to patients, said Eliza Wheeler of San Francisco’s Harm Reduction Coalition, a nonprofit that works to combat overdoses and has received donations of Evzio. But at $4,500 a package?
“I might have $10,000 to spend on naloxone for a year, to supply a whole city,” Wheeler said. “If I have 10 grand to spend, I certainly can’t buy two Evzios.”
Mark Herzog, Kaleo’s vice president of corporate affairs, said in an email that most earlier naloxone devices were “developed, designed and intended” for use in medically-supervised settings.
Prior kits contained a pre-filled syringe. The Evzio was the first to help laypeople dispense the drug. And competition is limited: One of the few consumer-friendly alternatives to Evzio is a nasal spray device for naloxone.
