Big Pharma helps out Big Food*
new pill to help the 100M obese Americans, so they can keep eating offerings from Big Food. A payback for all the goldmine of millions of chronic illnesses Big Food has helped produce for Big Pharma/Medicine. A perfect circle.
Meanwhile Big Real Estate/Transit etc. works in a supporting role- making sure that the sprawlscape keeps the majority of Americans from having to walk more than 1000 steps a day.
Big Finance delighted with all of it.
*In fairness, Big Food is a different entity than Big Ag. Big Ag just produces the industrial inputs for Big Food, which then food engineers them into unhealthy crap that people become addicted to. Although USDA/Big Ag certainly play along.
