‘Profit’ is not a bad word

Dear Sir,

In this era of reducing medical costs, the recent announcement of a new facility makes me wonder how such costs can be reduced.

Financing of medical, dental or optical operations by non-medical persons should not be allowed because most investors look at the bottom line. “Profit” is not a bad word and everyone in business looks to make a profit.

I am thinking of setting up a law firm and employing lawyers charging more than $600 an hour, taking 20 per cent.
