I agree that just spending money whether it be on baseball free agents, school teacher salaries or pharma R&D doesn't guarantee success. And, a model that incorporates both internal R&D and in-licensing may work well. Time/the market will tell us if Pfizer has th emix correct or not.


R&D budgets are one thing, but we all realise by now that innovation is not working at big .
Pfizer have a very innovative model that allows late stage development teams to select compounds to develop, and they realise that this are not going to come from internal research efforts.
So we need to know what these companies are spending on in licensing and developing innovation from biotech to get a better picture
