Denmark's Economy Would Be Shrinking—Were It Not For a Massive Boom in Pharmaceutical Exports Driven by Ozempic & Wegovy
Joey, what do you think the long run consequences of Semaglutide will be?
It’s mode of action is to literally lower individual demand for calories. I don’t see how this doesn’t change the world food system in the long run. Also, obesity is so massively correlated with all-cause morbidity and mortality and it’s been getting worse every year for decades and until now nobody ever figured that was going to change, and now oops maybe we cured obesity?
Curious about a more rigorous take on that basic thread.
Ok, I have a few questions: how big of an issue is weight loss in Denmark? And what does Denmark have in pharmaceuticals over other countries like the U.S? Also do you know how much Denmark's government spends on R&D and have pharmaceuticals always made the largest share of GDP or has it grown over time?
Thanks for another gem Joseph!
