     USA OKs $48B in global AIDS fight -
New Activism Idea - Direct Central Bank Grants to Patent holders by Fed Reserve

This is a new concept that I am thinking about and it is in early stages but it goes something like this.   The federal reserve is just printing money all the time now and giving it to thier friends on wall street, you know the types, republicans, people who hate gays, rich CEOs, and Wall Street banks, why doesnt the federal reserve bank - Directly  Grants money to the Patent holders of the HIV medicines in the amount that the company LOST because the poor countries had to BREAK THE PATENT in the first place.

The idea is to create and re-equalize the accounting system of the world to take care of these huge public health issues, has anyone studied accounting and understand Federal Reserve politics

Perhaps this could be a larry kramer kind of a theme -  the idea is that

THE PATENT holders are being robbed in a way by the breaking of the patent, (i completely support this) but there should be some kind of ACCOUNTING change made because of this -- Some of the smaller HIV med companies would get even a bigger windfall than they already get but they deserve it in a way, they took the risk and found the great new advanced meds.

In other worlds, I know it rewards small research firms like gilliad and also some of the big Pharma but if it was used to hire more people to do research for all the side effects and all the cancers that the drugs cause, and also just solve help solve other diseases.

It would have to be something that was agreed at the G8 meeting level of the world bank.

Directly Grant money to the Patent holders of the HIV medicines in the amount that the company LOST because the poor countries had to BREAK THE PATENT in the first place.   Exactly equal to the amount that they lost if the medicine was sold in first world.

This would do many things -- stimulate research at the small and large biotech companies (there would have to be a provision that the money went to salaries of new scientists only not to any of those terrible tv ads for drugs)  It would give a fair accounting and fair balance of power to usa vs. the poor countries where the patents were broken.   

(remember a small bio tech company like  gilead   could lose alot of revenue fast if there is another breakthru that shifted the meds away from them to a vaccine for treatment or another companies meds, so they deserve it now)

the accounting system of the world is incredibly old and dated

who needs to be contacted about idea... gay press, gilead and other big pharma, activists, clinton foundation that is granting money to fight aids, Fauci in DC, other connected individuals

please forward this idea to anyone who may have the expertise in accounting or industry contacts that might
help, this could be a tipping point kind of idea.

As a thought experiment, let african and south american countries outside usa break all aids meds patents and mfg the meds for themselves, they can do it cheaply and fast.  But usa companies would loose hundreds of billions of dollars.  So the USA companies are granted money in exact amount to what they loose when patent is broken in a special way by Federal reserve bank thru a special trust, perhaps the clinton foundation, and that money must be used to HIRE young researchers in SCIENCE for any diseases.  Everyone is happy and everyone lives happily ever after.

bimazek thought of it first

- This is outside the remit of the Central bank.
- Would probably be considered an illegal subsidy by the WTO (unfair competitive activity)
- There is no such thing as a unified world accounting system (not sure what you meant when you kept the world accounting system is old an dated)
- This would not guarantee that companies would reduce drug prices (they may just take the money and run)
- This may not guarantee additional spending on HIV research (again, they may just take the money and run)
- It's probably cheaper and more efficient if the government just increase expenditures on HIV research directly
- It may be difficult to measure lost revenues from broken patents and would likely be subject to manipulation by companies

Sound like a good Idea,

However I think it would be better to buy down one patient first for a Drug like Atripa and then also make a compact with Gilead to open a few more USA manufactuing plants for Atripa (empolyee some HIV folks too) in the USA and flood the Gobal maket with the buy down of Atripa's patient and create a Brand Generic Atripa with saving to USA and Global funding streams which can be  a win win win or what my friend would say Triplewinnerinternational.com.

Easier and less complicated and we can call it a polit program of Red, White and Blue for me and you

Here is something free for the think tanks that want to bring forth a new plan to help the 30 million people with HIV illiness on our Global.. Yes Free ..for I am here to serve.

Defining the Cure for AIDS with hopes for the 30 million PEOPLE that don't have excess to AIDS MEDS will have hope and life?

I just got back from a clinic appointment where my HIV Healthcare provider Dr. Don Kurtyka (good guy and like him a lot) inform me that Gilead Science the manufacture of Atripa has capture 75 percent of the HIV/AIDS market and is this globally too.  Well this makes me think, would it not be wonderful if all 30 million HIV people on our Globe had a pill available to them called Atripla.   And how could this happen. I am thinking of the concept for some time now.
One way is that President Obama could step in and call for a National Global Emergency and break the patient to allow a lot of manufactures to start making Atripa with an executive order.  This would bring the cost down and create a generic market and President Obama could also inform his staff to make Atripa available over the counter for sale as a PEP or PrEP to all in the USA to stop new infections.    This could slow down new HIV infections (saving resources) and keep people in an HIV status, NOT AIDS.  He could also ask for a refining of the term AIDS to follow the Global Scientist in creating a protocol of HIV stage 1, HIV stage 2, or HIV stage 3 illness and call for a end to the word AIDS as we know it to be.  One of my teachers in the past would say that the ask must conclude with an action of NOW.

That way my first though, however I am a compassionate guy and like Robert Chenney and Company, for I believe in the free enterprise system where people should and must have a right to sell their ideas, inventions or Intellectual Property in a free market.  GNP+USA would like for it to be a FAIR and Free Market.  So in my research of the past both in policy, advocacy and economic I learned there is always a middle road of compromise. 
Secondly our President with the support of AIDS Inc in America, Activists, Advocates, and the whole community could create a plan where the USA would buy down the patient of Atrpla for a negotiated price a few  billions dollars or so and take it out of PEPFAR funding, so Giliead would not lose money and Americaís would not loss jobs.  We could also make a compact with Gilead  to open a couple more manufacturing plants in the USA to mass produce Atripla( put HIV people back to work with good health insurance, a good pay check and hope for the future, saving again on USA resources and  money) 
And then employ the above plan to bring Atripla price down and hopes for the 30 million people with HIV/AIDS that donít have AIDSMEDS a fighting chance to live another day for the supply would go up and the price would come down.
I thought I share today what  A Cure for AIDS could look like and know my Faith tells me the Cure for AIDS is in oneís heart of action.
I sure this plan needs more research and fleshing out , but here it is in Black and White or what the beltway people would call a White Page and please feel free to forward, copy or use this intellectual property as Open Souce and Public Domain for my heart is for the 30 million HIV people that are crying out for Help in our global communities.
