Pharmaceutical companies are very powerful. Some people think that a drug company being punished for their crimes is a victory but as discussed in this video, if they make $180 billion and pay $2-4 billion in fines, they didn't lose very much money. So it really is better to pay the small fine compared to profits.
What needs to happen is the people that are behind the crime and corruption, need to go to jail. But then again, if that happened, the government wouldn't be able to make billions of dollars in fines if the people aren't doing wrong.
Its a sick system on both sides..
