Default Big pharma

There are lots of stories on the internet about big pharma that for example claim that: drug prices are too high; big pharma manipulates medical trials; and sells pharmaceuticals that cause harm.
None of these stories focus on the major shareholders of big pharma; that effectively controls what these companies do. I haven’t even found a single story on how these investment giants “strangle” us through their complete control of our “health care”.

Following are some of the major shareholders in the 10 largest pharmaceutical companies in the first quarter of 2018 in the US by revenue. I focus on the US, because it’s the easiest information to get.
In all of these pharmaceutical giants; Vanguard owns more than 12.5% (and is the single largest shareholder).


Major Shareholders in Johnson & Johnson include – Vanguard Group (more than 13%); Blackrock; State Street: https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/jnj/.../?guccounter=1
