    I appreciate the investigations and the reporting. Universities must come together so that they can resist industry (both individual large company and cartel) influence on academic work and place academics and ethics above competitive, university-specific profits. The present fast pace of change and ease of maintaining relationships at a distance make it impossible to maintain an American academic culture without broader institutions with financial and contractual leverage to enforce the culture. Of course, individual ethics would help too, particularly among our highest paid professors.

    There are great problems with corruption between pharmaceutical companies and doctors paid to endorse their drugs. This is likely worse with psychiatry and psychiatric drugs because psychiatry does not use objective,biological evidence so much as subjective criteria to define "illnesses" and "improvement".
