The USA subsides the world with research and development.<quoted text>
We are not the only nation developing new drugs (though we do develop a disproportionate share): "Although the United States comprises only 5% of the world's population, it accounts for 36% of worldwide research and development of pharmaceutical drugs."
Why should we subsidize drugs for the rest of the world? Why shouldn't we use our buying power to negotiate for the best prices?
Your number 36% is off by 60%.
Wikipedia is garbage in, garbage out.
you don't get it.....we are the money.....nobody else has any.
can I suggest you travel abroad.
I leave for Asia this Friday. Never been prior.
My passport has an addendum book because other is filled. I know differently.
PS: Next door neighbor is a Director at a drug manufacturer. Generic drugs don't pay for research. None.
