Vaccine manufacturers SHOULD make money for solving a massive problem - Piet Viljoen
Counterpoint Value Fund manager Piet Viljoen joins BizNews founder Alec Hogg as co-host of the BizNews Power Hour to weigh in on a number of topics in the news. Viljoen shares GG Alcock's sentiments on the SA unemployment rate and says that pharmaceutical companies should make money from producing vaccines, despite what many might say. "If they make money out of this, I think it's a good thing. I'm all for people making money by solving problems for other people. I think that's how the world should work and it should work that way more often," he says. Viljoen also chats briefly about investing, Old Mutual, and Italtile's positive results despite 18 months in a brutal Covid-19 pandemic.
