• Surprise: Pharma Company behind $750 HIV medication changes mind, decides NOT to lower drug price as
    45 replies, posted
Very few industries make such a blatant attempt at making absolute insanely maximum profits off of human death and suffering like pharma companies do. I have absolutely zero issues with the people who chair these companies being thrown in prison for the rest of their miserable lives. Or, better yet, just shoot them and throw them in a ditch in some remote countryside.

I do hope the public backlash is enough to get actual regulation on how you can set drug prices
Its only a matter of time before this dickhead goes bankrupt and out of business
at this point if I was head of Turing, I'd probably just sell the rights for Daraprim and figure shit out from there [QUOTE=Citrus705;49191388]Its only a matter of time before this dickhead goes bankrupt and out of business[/QUOTE] this dickheads [I]company[/I], Martin Shkreli is probably doing fine on his own right now.
[QUOTE=SnakeHead;49188396]They're companies just like any other, they're after the big bucks even if they have to fuck over people to get it. Why do we not have government price controls on medication?[/QUOTE] The general consensus among economists arguing against price control is that it ends up with racketeering (where person buys at low price controlled price and resells at maximum price the consumer is willing to pay), inefficiency and lowers production. That theory (ie unproven) assumes a whole load of things which would take a deeper discussion but IMO are obsolete or founded on fantasy and a whole load of other things which I've listed like 3 times before in the past week. IMO the lack of regulation has, in this case, created racketeering (this cheeky cunt), inefficiency (a relatively cheap drug not being given to those who need it and can afford it) and potentially lowered production if less people want it/can afford it. To the people who blame patents and consequently the state: Try to imagine a world without patents. If you still blame patents and consequently the state, try again, harder this time till you see why it would be a bad thing. [sp]For those struggling with the world without patent scenario[/sp] [sp]inventor invests time and resources into an invention. A company copy it using their resources to instead mass produce it with a lower production cost per unit. The inventor can't afford to compete so is bankrupted. Patents were originally made to protect that inventor from such things happening, to protect and incentivise innovation. [/sp]
i think people should stop overreacting at this guy. especially since there's already another company working on a cheaper generic. somehow i doubt the whole situation is as simple as this guy just being a super duper meanie head who should totally be brutally murdered because that's defs a healthy way to think about people.

Pretty much all the modern "b-but it's socialism!!!!!" comes from his campaigns in the 50's which were responsible for blurring the line between state socialism and any government intervention in the economy.. You can thank him for why the USA has no real universal healthcare or paid parental leave.
