The All Things Political Thread (One thread to rule them all and in the darkness bind them) in Way Off-Topic Posted March 29 5 minutes ago, Elerond said: It isn't inflation in case of insulin. It is unregulated market of product which has no alternatives, which means that people who need it have two choices, pay what drug companies ask or die. It is just pure robbery supported by US federal government, considering that insulin is 100 old drug that was never parented, but still only couple companies have right to sell it in US and there is no regulations for how much those couple companies can ask for dose which cost them less than one dollar to make. The more people demand it, the more valuable it gets. Hence, reduce the demand. It will also work miracles on the general healthcare costs, if less people will be fat slobs.
