AIDs Research

AIDs research is quite expensive which is why most AIDs drugs have predominately been developed in western countries. Lately the west had been taking quite the beating from the UN and various NGOs for not embracing the idea of giving free drugs to countries affected by the disease.

Cicada provides us this quote from Pfizer CEO Hank McKinnell:
Without intellectual property rights, "you would have exactly the same number of drugs that has been discovered in the Soviet Union in the past 50 years, which I think is about one," he said.
Those damn capitalists! Creating things that people need. If only we all lived in socialist countries where we were all able to die a slow and painful death everything would be great. Capitalists always ruin everything.
