They didn't like the idea being recorded figure. If the unknown of technology but by the mid twenties especially when the Electricity electorates recording act was passed in the nineteen twenty five recording. Just massively took off. I say that because before nineteen twenty five most recordings with just mechanical musicians would crowd around the big acoustic horn. And if you want it relative music to be loud or that musician we just move closer to the whole you know. It's very mechanical. When illiteracy came onto the scene microphones could be used moving moving clo- mara phones and very small basic mixing consoles and an electric driven cutting life so it can change the whole recording industry. It was a big deal

"Thanks so much for joining us. Yeah thanks for the opportunity. Great to be with you. Yes so talk to us a little bit about about you or not. What is it about health care that inspires you to stay focused on the field shirt. So i guess if i start off on a personal note i would say that medicine and health care are very much embedded in my in my dna. I come from a line of physicians that spans multiple generations and grew up with these stories of different patient encounters. Different clinical settings. So everyone my grandfather. My father my sister. My brother-in-law are all either physician or health services. Researchers are both could imagine that are thanksgiving discussion. They're pretty much heated. You know conversation over the state of health policy. Today you know type of my family. I had the opportunity to see across the healthcare system in in various roles over the last ten twelve years now and and kind of had a bite in in consulting in pharma in the government space in academia and. I think the thing that that keeps me going is that have been fortunate to be part of you. Know what. I what. I call these. The health dare movement and be they're gonna pivotal changes or sort of tectonic shifts in our healthcare system. I'm gonna happen within the last decade and kind of fundamentally transform the industry but also kind of thinking about how the healthcare system as a whole as evolving so some of the stuff that you you mentioned in my bio whether it was working on the affordable care act which was such a you know important piece of legislation or being part of of some of these larger data and technology movements even through the lens of the government big things that happened over the last several years and then more recently you know when i was at merck I had a chance to better understand what's commonly called. now it's real world data. Which is everything happening. Outside of data and clinical trials. And could that tie into improving economics research within that company. And i guess my most recent inflate of experiences are really pushing towards. How do you to move the needle in pharma research and development. And how do you better understand. Where data science and technology intersect with that changing space. So the the totality of everything. If you think about how interconnected the system is having those experiences. I have kind of shaped You know my my thinking now and really to where we are today. So that's been fun intents and kind of an inspirational experience to date for me.

Connect to 5D Gaia And Infinite Source With Dakota Earth Cloud Walker
"Well can to a nether. Podcast episode of merck kaba charlie russia's i'm your host von goats and today we dive into the healing nature of connecting to five guy or earth through the shamanic meditation and rituals with doug coda earth cloud walker. Now dakota been a teacher for over twenty five years and she brings a wealth of experience in how we all can connect to our planet and each other through shamanism so with that the coda welcomed makovich. Thank you so much for having me here. I really appreciate it and love talking about this stuff so at least you. I love metaphysics too. Yeah it's good stuff and there's so many different ways to come into metaphysics and high alums of consciousness and so many different experiences. You never really get bored so Yeah i love to okay so before we get into this wonderful discussion about the modalities that you bring forth to connect to five the guy and the higher consciousness within the universe. Let's begin with. How did you get into this work in the first place. Now well i would say that the work found me and really when i look back on my life i feel like i have been living the shamanic life ever since i was a kid. Even my parents would comment about that. That it was just that was always my natural way of being was to be more of that chamonix nature so for me. When i got into the work it was Really just kind of an extenuation of what i always knew and felt and then i just found a way to carve it out into my life. I started in my early twenties teaching spiritual studies and things like that and really diving into the world. Native american spirituality and celtic drew injury and just kind of finding my own path but then at the same time. I'm always been the one that you know. I feel very passionate about something. I want to bring it into my work and so became very easy dovetail to make that right right and you know just just for people to understand about shamanism. Shamanism is just kind of generic term. Because there's a lot of shamans all over the world. I'm laos and their shamanism house as well as well as all over the world. Mongolia china south native american The celtics have Their own as well and basically shamanism is just basically a spiritual approach to your connection to that subco- energy field of universal consciousness. Everybody s it. It's just kind of coming into that mysticism about reality and that's really what it is It is connected to any kind of religions there's no buddy to chew etc so In terms of a spiritual approach. It's very very very much. And we have a lot of shaman nissim type outlook in buddhism because buddha again is a spiritual approach that is not unreligious you reality and to connect to that christ consciousness within you and everyone else which is source so right. We're talking the same language years. Yeah yeah there's a lot of misconceptions about shamanism because they feel like it's it's primarily native american or that it's a religion you know. Some people feel very dark energy and really. It's it's it's very very light and it's more like a container that contains the soul of the person who is deciding to walk that path. In whatever capacity that you show up in

It's going to affect Consumers decision to return and also Whether or not as you say they'll be able to see content in the theaters So that's something that Were were monitoring And also looking to see what effects it might have on the media industry in hollywood whether the makers are going to be shifting to more permanent decisions that are going to impact cinemas including amc's Ability to continue going forward. I've heard tales that hollywood's power was consolidated amidst the spanish flu because cinema couldn't be made overseas at the time. And you have to wonder if now you know the the the the base for making movies will shift away more and more people. Tom cruise is the example. That i'm sure we all read about our making movies overseas. Because they just don't have the the ability to do it in hollywood and i also wonder if there'll be enough content. You know it takes. It takes a while to make a move. You can't do this in a week. So even after the vaccine after we've got herd immunity.

What's working what's not working to get the latest we welcome jalen mama dada global sector lead for healthcare at third bridge based in new york city. Jalen thanks for joining us here. We've got some news out here today about merck that its vaccine. They're pulling it's not working and then they kind of pulling from that. How significant is that. Thanks so much for having me. It's pretty significant. Given the low vaccine supply that we have and the inefficiencies on the logistics were both factors in providers around the cold chain for nasa's really increases our reliance on the expected positive readouts from changing novak's backs as well as in pipeline candidates like gsa benassi your platforms that you haven't really seen the media cover much like back i tablet or coded jenex ego vaccine all of those now are going to start mattering. The other front is on on merck. They have pulled back on the too. But it's important tells bear in mind that we should still be following potential reformulation on the delivery funds for their vsbn platform. So if you go from intramuscular to potentially nickel you may still see some form of efficacy. The question then is how far behind does that puts them on pfizer and madeira. Up extreme pressure in terms of streamlining their manufacturing. We've already seen shakeups in terms of Accommodating for temperature controlled environments and maderna's booster. Which will add a third regimen to be completely protective from the new straits will be more and more important on the upside though We've seen some loss team attention in terms of the neutralizing antibody molecules from louis.

"Depression. When people felt the worse the happiest songs came out. So when you listen to the lyrics of songs, you could hear we were copying those songs. We were paying homage and tribute to songs like happy days. High. Hand. Out So good times goes happy days are here again, you know the time is right for making it was going to say my feet keep dancing tap dancing brave. Nicholas. Brothers. The Real Nicholas Brothers are tap dancing on our record You punish it with Benard that was always fascinated me and Brian I. Mean We. Went to school together. So we used to rifle RECCO pins in Liverpool looking for records that set the Chic Organization on it. You know we were fascinated by this idea he said company what is it? dudes. We we work with. From a song creation point of view. From. Pooh bear to Teddy Geiger to Benny. Blanco. We work with the finest songwriters in the world and everyone has that fascination that you're talking about with the chic. Organization and the way that these records were made because they still sound like you know even though they were made forty years ago, they still sound like two thousand and twenty, one, not nine, hundred, seventy, seven, one, thousand. Nine, hundred, seventy nine, and we were having this discussion earlier we did this study a couple of years ago where the interpolations in the samples of Nile Bernard's records are successful as the original records word just to put that in context the freak is the biggest selling single in the history of Atlantic records but that's one of the greatest record companies ever that has everything from aretha Franklin. Charles to led Zeppelin to grow you know. And this is the biggest selling song in the history of the label. This is a label that started in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty seven, and is obviously the heart of Warner music. Group today and yet the interpolations and the records that are made out of sampling that record and leading parts of it and other good times and everybody dance and Tell them the story of Soup for one now So after this event, call disco sucks happened in the summer of seventy nine. It's hard to believe that we actually had to number one pop singles in Nineteen, seventy, nine, two number ones. But after that event, we never ever got another top ten record ever again under the name of Sheikh and it was through the heartbreaking because spiritually and artistically we hadn't changed at all. Because the mood had changed so drastically so quickly and also maybe a lot of it had to do with the fact that it was now a new decade and it seems like every decade you have the responsibility to change you to become. Cooler. We made a decision to. Do something, and try and pursue a different style of music anyway. So we got soundtracks and I went into video games and all that Kinda stuff you know in the future. But when we did our first recording of soundtrack, it was four film called Soup for one and the film was so bad that it closed in two days. Honestly two days, it didn't even stay in a week. But what's really funny about it is that the soundtrack years later, the songs soup for one, the title Song was covered by a group called Macho and they turned it into a song called lady hear me tonight and that became a number one record all over the world, and then even like songs like my score from coming to America Snoop Dogg samples the part where the royal penises clean. Your is all sorts of different motifs that. I would right We're being repurpose different artists because I think that no matter what the medium is. I'm always trying to write music that touches your soul that's why I say she is a soul band we play. So music I want you to move I want you to dance I. Don't want you to just sit there and think about owes guys are really clever. Wants you feel it first and then start to analyze it later that's just what I believe in. It should be primal. And intellectual but the intellectual part comes later you start to tear it apart after you see fiction two or three times you go. Oh Shit I. OH Now. I get it. I don't need you to get it the first time as a matter of fact, if you get it the first time I feel weird. We purposely try and make it. Honestly. We try and have double entendre we wanted to be confusing some of my closest friends. Even people who are in cheek sometimes singing the wrong lyric. We teach them the song like I had a girl in the band for a while when we would say just come on down to fifty four in la freak she was seeing just come on down to the fifth floor. Even though the lyrics prior to that are telegraphing that you're in a nightclub about a new dance craze, Blah Blah Blah but come on down to the fifth floor and there you can buy cosmetics shoes. What the hell are you singing and one night? I heard her and I said, we don't think the lyric is. Just come on down to the fifth floor. Bow. Was Saturday by Norma Jean that a hit in the first instance because that's kind of another one of a second wind in recent years. Saturday was written well, before we knew Norma Jean Saturday was a song that was in our repertoire when we will call the big apple band and we used to play that live and people liked it. It was a really good song. The only reason why it didn't make the first chic album is because we had dancing stance I won't give you the subtitle. And we had everybody dance and we had strike up the band and we wanted to tell a story to us. Albums are like films and the first seek album was basically our live show. We were an opening act. So a brand new opening, agan those days if you had seven original songs to play, that was pretty good said. So that's why we didn't put Saturday on that record, but we were saving it for when we thought it would be useful. What happened was I don't usually talk about this because I hate to say bad stuff. But what happened is that we didn't quite get along with Norma Jean is the way we would have liked to. So what we did was instead of just kicking her out of the band, we got a really big record deal. And say here now do it yourself but we'll make the record for you. Give you a really good cushion. We know this song Saturday is the bomb. So we gave her Saturday and we wrote every song except for. Sam Cooke Song that we covered. So when you Benard were working on songs for other artists like sister sledge, do a particular process. Is there any way you can talk us through the kind of way in which you would originate an idea? We we had a process, right? What we did was we conceptualize the record before we would write anything we would say, okay what is this all about sister sledge we were talked into doing by the head of our record label. He had offered us the rolling stones and Bette Midler, and Bernard and I knew that what I'm GonNa tell Keith Richards Guitar Parts to play until. Mick Jagger what lyrics to sing. Don't think so. I mean, we knew I mean can you imagine I mean nowadays of course? There could be a really big rock band who you guys are. Cool. SONGWRITERS here. Let me hear you saw. But in those days. The artists wrote their own songs. It would be really weird for the stones to get other people to write their songs. So we knew that we were basically songwriters and conceptual people. Sister Sledge was perfect for us because the head of the record company basically. The libretto to this opera this this movie that we were going to write about these girls. He told us that they were like family. When they come to the building they stick together like further, and then all of a sudden after this big pitch, he wanted us to produce somebody on Atlantic win. He finally got the sister sledge and we went home and we looked at our notes. The Chic. Organization right we tried to act like we were real professionals. So we wore suits to the meeting. We wore suits and we had like yellow legal pads and we're writing it down and when we got home, we realized that basically dictated the lyrics that we are family. Like, check this out dig this they stick together like birds. And we fly just like birds of A. No lie while they're religious. Okay. Cool. We got the I won't tell. No. Okay. So we are family was really like a story about sister sledge. What happened was it turned out so well that we holy cow, this song is too good to put out first because if we put this out, I know when is gonNA listen to the rest of the album and I think that pound for pound the sister sledge album may be the best record we've ever done like there's no lame song on that album..

"For for me, you know I can't play the guitar I can't sing a song but I'm obsessed with music and I'm obsessed with the creative process. So the only thing that gives me a seat at the table with great people like Nihil is. A knowing my shit, and then be using that as a way to advocate and protect and communicate on behalf of artists so that the artist side of the equation is always winning because we work in an industry where everything is weighted against the artist and even though the artist is creating ultimately what it is that the consumer wants and that the consumers consuming. The artist is getting the smallest piece of that. And it takes people like myself to. Make a difference in them. Is An excise impassive you'll work getting to observe Nile in action say Nabi Road for instance where he is currently doing a Lotta work. Every day is incredible. We are, but you know we we pinch each other sometimes make sure that it's real. You know yesterday we were with Andrew Lloyd Webber and you know were going through and were helping Andrew figure out how to make some of the greatest songs of all time appropriate for today's fourteen year olds and a we go. We didn't know that was going to be part of our agenda this week and we have a pretty good idea what we're going to be doing next week but I guarantee you. As ING will end and our lap and my wife will have to figure out why we're not going to the west and. Made great waves in the industry last year when you're. Hypnosis Song Fund began trading on the London Stock Exchange can you explain what that venture is and where the idea came from? So again, this this is. Out of the riffing. The goes back and forth between Nile. About our obsession with music and you know the, the one thing that we realize that Niles career is a testament to is that proven songs hit songs are predictable and reliable and therefore investable. So we decided to take that idea to the financial community and we created this fund, which as you pointed out his raised over five, hundred, million dollars, half a billion dollars and that's invested now. And ultimately, what we sort of put forward to these people as these predictable reliable assets are exactly that there are new asset class and they're better than golden oil because if Donald Trump wakes up tomorrow morning and does something crazy golden oil is affected. If brexit happens golden oil is affected whereas with great songs, you know when times challenging people escaping with great zones when times are amazing, people are celebrating with great songs. So music being consumed all the time and wanted to. Not. Just on our behalf, we like to make money like everyone does, but we wanted for the songwriting community to create this asset class and to get the financial community to look at songs as being something that had extraordinary value. It's important to understand also that music is now being consumed at a greater level than it's ever been consumed in history because streaming because of convenience because it's so easy to hear the weird stuff that we love. It makes us not only happier because we can consume this music, but it also shows that the value of it can only go up because as more people consume. Even if it just stayed the way it was you would do better, but we plan to make it a lot better and. Certainly a lot more profitable for the songwriter with our fun. I mentioned we like to make money like everyone does, but our fund has an alterior motive that is as important as the motive which is that we want to change where the songwriter sits in the economic equation. The songwriter is the low man or woman on the Totem Pole despite the fact that they're delivering the most important component to artist having a hit an artist having a career, the business that I came into thirty five years ago was one where you know the songwriter and the artist were one in the same. Now Rogers. Today most you know, ninety percent of the artists that are being signed are very talented kids that ultimately have one endgame. How do I get famous and it doesn't matter who song this singing it doesn't matter whether it comes from TV talent competition or from social media. So. If your you know Zara Larsson and you have access to hit songs, you're at the top of the charts if your iggy Azalea in five years ago, you had the biggest song in the world with a song called fancy. But for whatever reason you no longer have access to hit songs you're nowhere. So the songwriter is delivering the most important component yet he or she are the no man or woman on the. Totem. Pole and this is because there's been a seventy five year paradigm where the likes of universal wondering. Sony. As the three biggest song companies in the world can advocate for songwriters because they're owned by Universal Warner and Sony the three biggest. Recorded music companies in the world and on the recorded music side of the business, you've got four fifths of the money. You've got a bloody great margin and in general, they own those assets perpetuity in on the song side of the business you've got one fifth of the money going that way you've got a tiny margin in relative terms and quite rightly whether it's reversions whether it's through renegotiations or whether it's just through smart deal making in the first place, the songs end up back in the hands of the people that created them. So the Universals, the warriors, Sony's at a point in time when the businesses improving as it is right now thanks to streaming. Use their leverage of recorded music owning songs to push that improvement towards rewarded music as opposed to the Creator's if there are no great songs there really is no music business. When I started, we used to go to concerts to hear new music that was basically the even if it was somebody as famous as the Jackson five that would have a huge catalog, but there's show would be sure you'd hear those hits eventually but they're show would be the new music that they were working on to figure out. Is it going to come out on the next album or it's on their current album but you just haven't bought the new album yet because you're only listening to the single so you basically. Only knew half the songs in the show that was entertainment that was show business in those days because you had to go on stage and groove yourself worthy of a person buying your music Now, it's very different because you can hear the music free anytime you want and it's of created a different kind of audience in that the people are expecting to hear hits that they know. So when Murk and I I started talking about this, we were saying that by concentrating on the songs that are proven hit records that you know that those are the songs that the audiences coming to see those are the songs that advertisers would use to promote and sell their products those are going to be. At the top of the food chain, those are the songs that are going to be out there generating most of the income and it's actually always been like that. That's what we used to talk about back in the day when we talking about the black box royalties and how it was always that money would somehow get funneled to all the people at the biggest hit records in the world because it was a lot easier to figure that out because they were at the top of the food chain. If you have a system like we do now where where you're going through streaming and we can tell what those numbers are almost instantly the whole paradigm shift has to happen and it's easier to. Be More fair and to have an equitable distribution of assets. I mean it's like I. When I first started, you were able to make a really good living with just records that were marginal hits. You didn't have to have the number one record in the world you could just be in the top forty and do really well, but the world has changed now imagine with streaming if we run into each other in the streets five years ago, we wouldn't be able to look at each other and say that the best days of the music industry are in front of it. We would definitely be saying that the best music industry were behind it. Now, the glory days are yet to come we've got. Two years ago, we had fifty million paid subscribers to music streaming.

Normally we're enthusiasts but every once in a while we can be little bitches as well. Fan Back, in the day when. I'm a massive fan actually funny enough I bought dance dance dance the day that it came out and I hated. I hated the Yau's Yasser Yasser. Right. But I found myself despite being punk rock kid listening to clash records and things like that. I kept going back to this record over and over and over again even though I hated the. House apart, because the guitar was fucking unbelievable, the base was unbelievable. The playing was unbelievable and at the end of the day it was incredible song. Tao Hook though. That hook almost got in the way of the very beautiful relationship. and. Why is it? Do you think that you guys makes what you could seem? How'd you compliments each other? It's definitely because of our love of songs are love of musicianship. We can go on and on and on about different albums that we like different artists that we like their perspective on the world and the way that they express themselves through music. I mean mark and I are. All we do is talk music all day long the fact that we're in the business of music together is. Probably one of the most natural relationships I could have imagined because this no record that I could talk about that. He doesn't know something about I, mean it could be the wack years most avangard ridiculous because even the musicians themselves would say, you know I woke up this morning and I wrote some ridiculous ship. But I decided to record it after all what the hell. You know. So we know and love some of those ridiculous recordings and have incredible appreciation for the art of making records and making music.

"For those things the way in which we now get drugs. Reimbursed is somebody who needs key true and key trudeau cost about one hundred sixty thousand dollars a year. People don't have that broad brought but if we're extending people's lives and we're preventing the cost of people dying from cancer which is much more expensive than one hundred sixty thousand dollars advertise. What do we gotta be able to do that? Right up giving back briefly give us how move. You're which I think hit your feelings anyway with the Pope Francis and giving back well the the opportunity of About a year and a half ago to spend thirty five minutes alone with the Pope Polk. He invited me actually. He's a jesuit priests who was a chemist before he became the pope he trained on the Merck Index. And so he invited me to do. The data can the sit with him and To make sure that I understood dead as Matthew Twenty five says that whatever we do for the least of his we do unto to him and he wanted us to know that while Merck has a soft heart. There's a lot more we could do for people. Well you've done with river blindness in Africa and Youtube was twenty thousand. Yeah says one of the most proud of right now is the work that we're doing on maternal mortality You know here in New York City. An African American the woman is four times more likely to dial childbirth than the white women and it doesn't matter what her status of education is right next door our home state of New Jersey. We're dead last of the fifty states in terms of racial disparities in birth and dying women. Die These are things that we need to fix country. It's great that we've done the human genome the people's genetic codes helping us decide how to treat them. But the reality of the world is the ZIP code is more determinative of your health in this country right now than your genetic code and and we have to find ways to deal with these health disparities and I'm very proud that wants to spend it's time it's money and it's talent on those issues. I know we've just run out of time but one of the things as you. It is very important. Every leader dozen the importance of people but explain just quickly how you got Roger Promoter to come back and uh made such a difference just an example of people are important but how do you get the People Watch and I worked together at Merck when we were both very young and and then he left to go to Amgen when I became CEO. He had just retired from Amgen. So I got on a plane and went out to beautiful Santa Barbara where he lived in was retired and tried tried to convince him to come back and I don't know whether it was that he saw the opportunity. Or whether you felt some level of guilt but but he didn't come back and it made a huge difference. It's not just tim I have to say one of the funny things about being a CEO is what I call the narrative fallacy when your company does well everybody says look how good that guys right right. The reality of the world is the two things that make the biggest difference. Because what is the environment in which your company is functioning at a particular point in time. Warren Buffett said that if you take a great manager and put them in failing business model always bet on the failing business model right so it helps. If you're in the right environment I come the Merck with Immuno oncology allergies exploding and we have the lead drug so the environment was good. But the second thing to your point about Roger Steve Is. It's the performance of other people that make you successful and so I just want to say that. I've been very fortunate to be surrounded by terrific talented committed scientists engineers and other other people inside Merck and I know it's the narrative fallacy shows Why you're such an effective leader and now Let's formerly give you the award. Ken Thank you so much for being As you'll now agree this was a well deserved award for an extraordinary man about leadership and moral courage and now I hope you'll also learn something from my reeds of the week.

"Purpose if you stick with it during bad times and so for for us. It was just a question of saying. We're not going to do what's going to keep some. Investors happy in the short run by giving up with the company has always stood four hundred and twenty-five years. One of the things you got rid of this earnings guidance this idea gotta play quarter by quarter long term earnings Scott and Make the point that the importance of it's not a pun patient capital right. Exactly exactly you know one of the things when I became. CEO The we had put in place five years of long-term EPS guidance of which only only two years had elapsed and when I became CEO. We were still on a track where we could achieve that long-term earnings guidance but at a very high cost it would require immediate and indiscriminate cuts aren't and so I made the decision twenty five days into the job to withdraw the guides which is not something that it was a lot of fun because Wall Street didn't wasn't didn't treat that very kindly But I think looking back at that to your point about patient capital the shareholder base did turnover very quickly. Didn't feel good at the time because the stock value plummeted but what happened was people who believed in R. And D. bought the stock and people people who didn't believe in it sold the stock and went on elsewhere and actually they gave us the room and the time to rebuild our scientific enterprise to the point where now we're making some very significant contributions talso gets to appoint some CEO's overlook. Is that the importance of the stylish rules of the game. If you make the point this is how we're GONNA be guided you'll get the kind of investors will go along with that. I think that's all right. I think that's right and Your big drug. The one that everyone talks about today's immunotherapy was amazing. Several of not that many years ago people had doubts about it and uh this drug came to you through a merger and even inside your company there. It was skeptical. Walk us through how that evolved so this drug key. True to which stimulates the body's immune system to fight tumors obviously different from and now but years ago it was seen as what right the idea that you could cause the body's immune system to fight cancer was seemed it seems farfetched and of course people were treated with chemotherapy radiotherapy But for fifty years people have been looking at this as you know the Nobel Prize was given. Even Jim Allison for this last year. The fact of the matter is when we bought this company Organon which was a part of sharing cloud. We weren't smart enough to know that there was a drug of this value there but the one thing I can't say with truth about the acquisition was that we thought really good science. What's happening in Oregon and and so the acquisition was a lot of people who are really smart? People have been working very hard on certain issues for long period of time and we. We thought we were getting optionality on all that long period of work and it turns out that it's going to be one of the most important drugs ever introduced into who clinical practice. Certainly one of the broadest into set of indications ever. We weren't smart enough to know that that drug was there But we we did it bring it on new head of research. Roger Promoter who just happens to be immunologist by training who spent longtime amgen developing oncology drugs and as soon as he came in in the door and survey what was there he said. This is amazing. This is a drug that we can really make something out of and help a lot of people in. That's what we've been fortunate to and and Talk about the the phrase. The gift that keeps on giving this drug keeps on giving you mentioned you have over a thousand clinical trial designing more and more tumors that it can attack. It's unprecedented. It's you know we have twenty indications. Now we're moving earlier and earlier lines of therapy where expanding into new tumor types. It is the first broad spectrum anti neoplastic agent introduced in clinical practice. And so it's up to us to make sure that. Ah We find the resources to get this drug to as many people as we can because of the importance of it to people every day not getting into the weeds of it but ah decision was made that looked like short term might restrict the use of the drug but laid the foundation for its wider use and that is a explained biomarkers biomarkers and the choices. Andrew was just talking about the need to make sure that we get value out of drugs and that we use the right drug at the right time for the bike impatient and so when we were studying the drug initially a lot of people on Wall Street criticize our use of a biomarker or a test to actually help stratified patients and predict which patients would respond to the medicine and not the idea on part of some people is. Why would you want to restrict the number of people who are eligible for your drug? And I'll borrow something that I think. Andrew was alluding to the drug doesn't work it really doesn't have any value for that patient and therefore it doesn't have any value for the system so what we wanted it to be able to do when we discover we started working on this drug. We wanted to understand how the drug works fundamentally as monotherapy and for which patients it would work and in the early days that restricted our use of the drug but as we began to understand the drug better it helps us understand what were the better agents to combine it with and I think in the long run it turns out that taking the scientific approach was the right protein. Developing this drug in the beginning is say look restrictive but it opened up a ended up a wide vista drug pricing. We won't get in the rather complicated it'd subject but one of things that People focus on his costs just quickly give us lives saved. But let's get to the bottom line. Let me take a step back and and talk about this in a broader perspective. Because I think that those of us who are in the business of inventing composition of matter chemicals and biologics that are intended to work in the body to say even extend lives I think people don't understand first of all how hard that it is to get. That done. We fail more than ninety percent of the time. If you go back to your nine thousand nine hundred in the United States a child born in the nineteen hundred could expect a fifty years on average now child. Born at the end of the twentieth century could expect to live to be almost eighty. So what happened so obviously sanitation tation clean. Water helped nutrition help education helped but a lot of the expansion life expectancy density after the fifties had to do with childhood vaccines had to do with antibiotics. It had to do with statins anti-hypertensive. HIV drugs cancer drugs. And so if you just look at Merck Merck has been a pioneer in. Every one of those feels feels fortunate when we develop a drug Indiana via creeks event for HIV. I remember what it was like when we first gave that drug the people at Hospice and people who are dying we're able to sit up take nourishment get stronger. It's a miracle when you see what these medicines can do. Sounds like the miracle with the early twenties with insulin. Diabetes Obsolete was time and that fifty cases and they brought the insulin and and and write as they gave it going down the line of these patients. They started to recover exactly. You could see it before your eyes. There's no question at the drug work. When you randomize people? Some people got the drugs. Some people got the placebo. You could see that the drug war. We're seeing anything now with amy on comedy you know Jimmy Carter had said his goodbyes is and now he gets the drug add metastasized to his brain and and now he's healthy only. He keeps running into issues now because of his age. But but these drugs can do wonderful things and coming back to your pricing issue. The fact that they can do wonderful things. I agree with some of the things that Andrew say we have to find find a way to develop a system or an approach where we can get the benefit of these jobs over time and pay for them one of the problems we have as an industry is. These drugs are really expensive but a lot of things are expensive. Houses are expensive. Educations are expensive but we don't expect somebody to take completely.

"Make? It's understandable extendable to people which made him so affective. When he became president he'd been Danieli making the case? Bring people along. You said something very interesting. I think you've already already answered part of it but you want said companies do have souls explain that which goes against the whole tack today against stew companies. No properly run they have a soul. Yeah I think it's unfortunate that corporations have become the whipping boy for people they've created tremendous wealth around around the world if you look at how many people risen in the past few decades from dire poverty globally. A lot of it is because of private enterprise is because of capitalism the vehicle through which that happens generally corporations but what I meant by saying a company has soul is that the company is made up of a group of flesh and blood people and those people have a sense of purpose at Merck people get up every day in the morning with the desire to alleviate human suffering. And that's what motivates it's people I talked about our bowl vaccine which we're very proud of the people who worked on Ebola vaccine. Did Not do that because we assign them. Full time to that days were where people are. Researchers are manufacturing people are chemical engineers. They said we want to do this. On top of what we're doing every day because we see an opportunity to again ah prevent disease alleviate human suffering so that ethos that sense of purpose is what I mean by Seoul and you'll see that there have been companies that had drifted away from that and those are the companies that have really gotten into trouble either legally or with Brooker said well. That's exactly right. They've lost purpose in the world. Oh so you become head of Merck and company that had a tradition of a great pipeline of great new drugs but it hit a dry spell l. and the industry was under pressure Why spending so much or indeed cut it back? Let's shut startups develop the drug and if it looks good you buy the company out and let them do the Scutt work right but you said No. You're you're going to go in the opposite direction leadership. How how did you make that decision? Sounds it's easy to say. Yeah but when the whole pressure is to do the opposite they had. How do you resist that and convince people to ultimately go along with you so let me start by saying I have been extremely fortunate to be surrounded by scientific giants at Merck? You know my first exposure to mercury is very young lawyer. I worked very closely with a person who's was named Dr Maurice Hillerman who invented forty childhood. Vaccines his obituary was on the front page of the New York Times. It said he'd say the lives of more people than any scientists who lived in in the twentieth century. And so if you get to know those people and then I work for Dr Roy Vagelis my first job. When I came in through inside Merck was not as the lawyer? Man was lawyer for year but that he brought me and made me his chief of communications and it was his last two years his valedictory two years. Where my first two years and so I had to put into words his conception of the soul of mark and I have to say on my best day today at the company? I'm simply rechannelling. What I learned he would say for example so you know there are lots of KPI's lots of Of Objectives inside a company lots of ways of keeping track of business but ultimately there's only two metrics that matter when you're the CEO. Merck one is how many people do help and to how much help do you give those people and if you maximize is those two metrics it's the CEO. All the other metrics will take their place so in some ways I would say I was maybe brainwashed to think about the company's higher higher purpose in a different way so when I became CEO it was at an interesting time in the twenty ten era. Twenty nine two thousand ten. The industry had hit a long dry spell And Wall Street was saying there was a provocative piece put out. I think it was by Morgan. Stanley say a create shareholder value by cutting research and that had become what a lot of companies believed in. I think that fundamental research matters fundamentally finally and I think in a company like Merck. You can only maintain the company's.
