It's Evolution Baby

So, after Pfizer announces it acquisition of Wyeth the rumors start to fly. BMS is the winner of the who's next poll at Fiercebiotech...could this by why?

So, it appears likely that Sanofi-Aventis is going to buy BMS creating the world's larger-est pharmaceutical company. Like a senator once said, a billion here a billion there and soon you are talking about real money. Speculation is rampant that Pfizer would not go gently into that good night, of being #2. So, are more deals in the offing?

This is the evolution of the business we live in. If we are lucky, some of us will actually have a job in the future DynaMegaUltiCorp.

Think how it used to be with manufacturers of commercial aircraft...

Hope this recession will not have bad impact on this field (as it is more on other fields). Acquisitions and mergers are sometime welcomed, m bit scared....
