Should've stick this in the crony capitalism thread.

Some may misunderstand this as an abuse of the system; rather, it [i]is[/i] the system.

Actually it's the effect of the corruption of a system which could work.

Which is why this should be in the crony capitalism thread.

The drug prices issue seemed a little too hot-button to stick into the cronyism discussion.

However if you have a link to show the insurance companies investment arms are into pharma stocks... open minded about merging the discussion.

Pharma, Govt patent regulation, Insurance Companies ... is there a word for a three part crony system to take public funds into private investment?
via payment (insurance company) policy and then into stock investment.

Open season :)

The term is bribery, which is now legal.

Public funds->pharma patents->prices raised->insurance prices <- public funds + pharma investor profits.
