Putting Profits First 

The slogan of pharmaceuticals company Mylan is “Seeing is Believing”. If you check the prices of their life-saving EpiPens, you might see that they’ve skyrocketed recently. You might also believe that this sort of gouging is immoral, and even wrong. Mylan’s chairman, Robert Coury, is apparently not bothered.

Mr. Coury replied that he was untroubled. He raised both his middle fingers and explained, using colorful language, that anyone criticizing Mylan, including its employees, ought to go copulate with themselves. Critics in Congress and on Wall Street, he said, should do the same. And regulators at the Food and Drug Administration? They, too, deserved a round of anatomically challenging self-fulfillment.

That exactly the sort of class I’d expect from these people.
