[Ip-health] New Tufts study on R&D costs

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 
his shoulders. 

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.
