That's the only term for when drug companies hike prices 5000 percent. One drug went from $13.50 to $750 (no I am not missing a decinal point). Thats a big price increase. I could not believe it when I read the article.
"Although some price increases have been caused by shortages, others have
resulted from a business strategy of buying old neglected drugs and
turning them into high-priced “specialty drugs.”"
And its not just one drug, its several. So what happened to the old justification of the research and development costs are so high? There were no new development costs. Probably just marketing crap, once again.
