The Centre for the New Europe is the Pfizer Corporation’s “think-tank” echo chamber in Brussels. It was originally set up to by the world’s most profitable pharmaceutical corporation to push it’s agenda to EU legislators. Despite efforts at funding diversification it still receives the most part of its funding from the drug firm. Hence it is the only “free market” think tank to lobby hard for protectionism (for Big Pharma).
So it is with some amusement that Guido reads of the appointment of Stephen Pollard as CNE’s new President. It is a just reward for so many years of paid pamphleteering on behalf of Big Pharma’s shareholders. Perhaps he can widen the funding base with support from McDonalds?
