Efficiency In Government

Here’s my question: if the Chinese government within a matter of months can produce enough avian flu vaccine to inoculate 14 billion chickens, geese and ducks, how come in three of the last five flu seasons, the U.S. government and vaccine industry couldn’t supply enough regular flu vaccine for just 300 million human beings?

Somewhere in corporate world someone figured it would not be cost efficient to make all 300 million shots, so they didn't.

The Chinese, it seems, just did what had to be done and dam the cost. Sad when a communist nation does today to maintain a healthy populace, isn't it?
