Buying a Cure - What business know-how can do for disease

I found this to be an interesting article. It reminded me of the LIVESTRONG Summit in 2006 when Mike Milken stated how we can remove the drug companies from the picture and start offering millions of dollars to the best medical personal in the world and create college like atmosphere for cancer "think tanks" to ensure we find a cure with the next 10-20 years. I remember an example he gave of finding the smartest people in the world and giving them $2 million to move to a specific location and work toward fining a cure without worrying about funding.

I am not sure if I agree with the idea of buying a cure or not, but it sure does get you thinking.
