The soul on the balance
13 July 2018 | by michaelsundmlisSee all my reviews

It's not related to the politic correctness of Chinese government. It's just the trade-off between the pharmaceutical companies and the patients.

Higher drug price -> Companies gets more money -> More drug researched -> better drug produced and the old drug price drop. It is a chain of the free market in theory.However, that's why the theory is always in theory.

Yes we will finally get the market balance of the drug price when the drug matches the average buying power. However, how many people would die before and after it? Can we really put the lives and souls onto the balance?

Was it worth it? (Yes you are right, I am playing Frostpunk:)
