Epipens: A Slightly Different Take

City Journal has a slightly different take on the epipen situation than NCPA. Yes, government is still involved but it's also the result of other things:

"Vilifying pharmaceutical companies may be good election-year politics, but the EpiPen saga merely illustrates old fashioned rent seeking and aggressive marketing. These strategies can work in the short run. Eventually, however, they are destined to be defeated by public pressure and market forces."

What does it matter? They're just setting the pace for Johnson's beloved TPP.

"old fashioned rent seeking and aggressive marketing"

"Old fashioned" like English property barons killing their Scottish and Irish renters because they could. And did.
Aggressive marketing speaks for itself, doesn't it? Especially that "aggressive" part.

We'll just have to wait for that "public pressure" to be applied like a well placed tourniquet and those "market forces" marshaled for victory on the battlefield of human health.

Pure gibberish garnished in garlic. That last part should keep the vampires at bay.
