U.S. Drugs, Canadian Prices

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Moreover, significant demand for new drugs has allowed them to dramatically increase prices (remember, price is not set according to 'cost of production' but by 'willingness to pay'). The pharaceuticals would get their patents, open research facilities in Canada (a promise never kept), and agree to be subject to a ceiling on prices. drug prices and roll their eyes.
