Don't forget rants about how you're expecting to get competent talent for $17K/year.
6 figure salaries in an area where cost of living makes that a lot of money. But don't let your ignorance stop you from commenting.
Of course you could solve the same problem by pealing back the red tape as well
In pharma, that red tape is known as "making sure the drug doesn't outright kill you." It's not perfect and it's currently being gamed, but the red tape is absolutely necessary.
The other problem with pharma is that the red tape is only necessary for the first person to do it. Thus, if the patent system goes away but the red tape stays there, then innovation will disappear completely because everyone will jump on the new drugs with generics and no need to recoup the costs of making sure it doesn't kill people.
There are things that need fixing with pharma, but simply eliminating red tape and patents certainly won't do it.
Moving to cross-country comparisons, we find that earlier results linking the gender gap in math to measures of gender equality are sensitive to the inclusion of Muslim countries, where in spite of women’s low status, there is little or no gender gap in math.
Also, looking at the graphs of gender gap vs gender equality, there's a trend towards no gender gap as equality goes up. Further, the gender gap is all over the place clustered around or just below 0.
Am I missing something here that says the gender gap isn't artificial?
Understand that in average both sexes are not equally fit for every task and equally gifted in everything is not sexism it is lucidity
Sorry for the poor source, but girls and boys are equal in mathematic ability when you look worldwide, which indicates that differences in the west are due to cultural bias, not natural ability.
Physically, men are stronger than women on average, but mentally it appears that it's entirely or nearly entirely cultural. In that case, saying that they're different on average in mental ability is at the very least supporting a sexist construct in our culture.
Except that if you're using it, then it was probably not the result of a startup that was bought and killed.
That VC money doesn't appear out of thin air. It often comes with the intention of the company being acquired, and was money previously invested in other companies that got acquired. It's all part of the ecosystem.
Think of it! With VLSI we can pack 100 ENIACs in 1 sq. cm.!
