    I do enjoy seeing STEM educated people take on economics. There is always an over reaction to news on the Street. Not to mention the brain drain by the private sector; foreign disparity in pricing.

    We certainly have to see taxpayer money was used to map the fruit fly, which has so much in common with the human genome. Then the healthcare market is so distorted by the K Street payola machine.

    Fantastic interview with some great general investing tips. Thanks. What's the diff b/n biotech and big pharma (no such thing as a dumb question)?

    I love these segments reflecting smart thinking about bio tech and technology. Would enjoy seeing more viewpoints from Silicon Valley, and thoughts about emerging tech.

    I was better educated through watching this segment. Its all too easy to slam big pharma for drug pricing, however, they have to make back their investment and some profit or why bother at all.
