    Twenty-five years ago a law known as Bayh-Dole spawned the biotech industry. It made lots of university scientists fabulously rich. It was also supposed to usher in a new era of innovation. So why are medical miracles in such short supply?

    This is regarding Economist article. A few days back I read an article on corporate clients of top atrologers. Compared to them management "gurus" are far better. At least they are logical in their approach. I think most of these criticisms are coming from academic economists. Economics itself is a sort of pseudo science, its predictions are often compared with astrology. Its funny to see these economists criticizing other professions.
