Executive Summary

In David Thomas' 2011 novel Blood Relative, a husband tries to recreate his wife's life in the heart of the former German Democratic Republic as a time when the influence of the socialist state was absolute. In a similar way, but in the home of capitalism, the world's largest healthcare company Johnson & Johnson (J&J) reported its third-quarter earnings last week and its methods to massage the news quickly influenced announcements of much smaller companies.
