For many decades the pharmaceutical industry has used government to rig their markets in such a way as to keep drug prices as high as is humanly possible even though the same drugs are sold for just pennies in other countries. In the old days advertising in the health care industry especially with respect to drugs was not legal. This was kind of a trade off since government was keeping the pharmaceutical industry competition free.
Why stop with the United States? There is cannon fodder all over the globe just waiting to get screwed by congress and our president on behalf of the largest drug companies in the world.
Well guess what? Along comes the Trans Pacific Partnership. Remember, this is that bill congress is bent on passing and no one knows what is in it. All that is known is that it is a trade bill. It turns out that the purpose of the bill is to rig markets overseas the same way the drug market is rigged in the United States. So, who gets hurt? When a market is rigged, starvation in third world countries always increases. Starvation in the poorest of countries is largely invisible, so it goes unnoticed.
Suffering in the following countries will be noticeable. Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States, and Vietnam.
Lets hear a round of applause for the big pharmaceutical companies! It takes a high level of genius to fool the Americans for so many decades and then figure out a way to do the same thing with all of the other countries in the world. What is even more amazing is that the cannon fodder of the world have no idea why nothing is going right for them these days. Some even think it is their fault.
