A few years ago I challenged a pharma CEO about the "cost of RD" and said
would you come any say it is 1.7 (2 years ago) and then 2, 2.3
afterwards. He said: yes , to which I said: but cannot you see that this
is unsustainable in rich countries let alone Dev countries. He shrugged
So can I have 2 bids? 1.8 and 2.3?
Like Ellen I would donate the money back to KEI - a great NGO deserving
all support possible.

I wanted to say 2.1 Bn but that one is taken so 2.2 Bn
If I win I will double the amount (the 50 not the 2.2Bn) and donate it
back to KEI.
