    How low PFE after 2008 guidance lowered? $23, $22, $21 or

    Only on your planet is the loss of Lipitor made up by allegedly raising prices on other drugs:

    1. Maybe those prices will be raised, maybe they will have to be cut for regulatory, legislative and competitive reasons. I'm very serious given what Dems have been saying.

    2.Prices would have to be raised 8-10% probably, just to keep up with 3 years of inflation.

    3.Such price increases, if they occur, have nothing whatsoever to do with replacing Lipitor. Only new drugs from the lab or acquisition can do that. You conceded that in the past, but you're back to the same invalid arguments.

    Similar dissection can be made of each of your supposed replacement items. The analysis is intellectually dishonest over and above assuming many things which may very well not occur.
