    I don’t think it needs to be nationalized. But being that most of the research is at least partially financed with government funds, there should be a reasonable limit to how much drugs can be priced above its cost to make. As an alternative, allow other manufactures to manufacture the drugs if they are priced above a certain amount, for example, over 10 times the cost to make.

    Pure capitalism has its failures, and it is up to the government to design it to stop abuse.
