A better strategy would have been to get the old med banned for some reason which would force people on the new med and keep generics from cropping up at some point.

Seriously, if a drug company decides to stop making a drug, the patent should automatically expire.

Well, if his assets are $20 Billion and his return on all his assets were only 5%, he would be generating $1billion in income. A write off of $70 million lowers his taxable income to $930 million. ( my guess is his return is higher than 5% but that is a SWAG)

Did the study take majors and school into account? If the black college grad population has a much higher percentage of degrees in social sciences versus technical degrees, that could be a part of the difference. It is likely that a large percentage of blacks got degrees from less prestigious black colleges compared to whites.

Just a couple of factors that could account for some of the gap.
