What does /r9k/ think of Martin Shkreli?
Check this shit out the man is B A S E D
Trolls normie sluts erryday!
He kinda looks like this one villan from "white collar". A British white collar criminal. Don't remember his name but the eyes remind me.
He was right about all his practices. Companies raise the price of drugs at that margin and even more all the time and from what I understand 2/3rds of the drug is given away for free ($0.01) with the remainder being the amount bought and distributed by insurance companies. It's such an unused drug that if they raise the prices, companies can't raise premiums on the consumers.
How can people be this retarded. He's ruining peoples lives and you think it's awesome. Fuck off you cynical bitches.
>Giving the drug away for a heavily discounted price to people who can't afford it and only charging the insurance company full retail
Do you generally make a statement having done no research? I feel like you do.
Americans LOVE villains, they need them to channel angst caused by the large, complicated problems that fuck them but they can't really understand. This guy is perfect because he's white, looks like a rodent, and did something so obviously naughty that everyone can circlejerk without thinking too hard. I only commend Shkreli for not giving the public what they want and usually earn from outrages - phony apologies and quiet submission. The cathartic process can't be completed because he's still doing fine and flaunting his wealth, making Americans feel as impotent as they actually are.
did you see his speech? here's a pic from it.
Is he the ultimate troll?
Another thing the media never mentions and congress somehow wasn't aware of is that his company gives the drug away for free if the patient can't pay for it/doesn't have insurance.
It's a very small drug that about 3,000 people take. It was being sold at a loss before, now it's being sold at a modest profit (modest since most of it is given away for free or $1). Raising the price was the correct decision if you want companies to have an incentive to keep producing, selling, and improving helpful drugs.
It really bugs me that we're being oppressed by autistic faggots like Shkreli and Zuckerberg
and Donald Trump and that fucking bearded manletinstead of alphas like Rockefeller and Carnegie. I'd feel a little better as a wagecuck if my boss was at least respectable.
This post you screencapped it retarded. If the poster really believed in capitalism, liberty, etc., he would know that the pharmaceutical industry is totally corrupt in how it takes advantage of intellectual property rights of new drugs. Funny thing is, supposedly there's already generic versions of the drug on the market.
topkek, how can autism be used as an insult? Only an ignorant cunt would use autism as an insult. (And there's nothing I hate more than ignorance)
Autism is a gift in my case, I have an IQ of over 150 which makes me technically a genius thanks to my autism. I've been going through school all my life being bored out of my fucking brains getting at least 95% on all my tests (and all the incorrect answers were silly mistakes) because I'm just too fucking smart for school I can't wait for everyone else to learn something I already knew within the first day or too of being taught it. Every year I scored the best of my year on these stupid multiple choice tests we do and the headmaster came to my class to tell me that, which obviously resulted in being called a 'nerd' which is true but I shouldn't be ridiculed for it.
I recently became home educated so I could learn at my own pace and I'm getting my GCSEs done in 1/4 of the time everyone else has to do it in, I'm also doing more than double the average amount of GCSEs that usually would be done.
I used to get paid $30 an hour working online, which is more than the teaching assistants at my old school earned, it was so fun pointing that out to them.
So, in conclusion, calling someone autistic is not an insult, in my case, it makes me highly gifted.
One more thing, I don't know if this has anything to do with my autism but I am a sociopath so I'm not hindered by irrational emotions like guilt, compassion, empathy etc.
kek, the most satisfying this is to know that you will all see this as a waste of a natural gift that I am undeserving kek, that brings me great satisfaction.
I'm practically perfect, let the jealousy flow through you.
somehow i can't buy this personality that he's projecting
if he was really serious about how he felt he would have given one response, ignored all the criticism, and fucked off like cheney did when he was found out
what he's doing isn't different from a lot of other companies, he just stumbled into a spotlight and doesn't want to get out of it yet
what does this mean, though?
does he have a plan or some shit?
is he promoting against the government that allows him to do what he does legally?
whenever people mention moral obligations, he seems to shrug it off entirely
seriously feels like this guy's a plant robots
I've been wanting to fuck him for a long time now, but I don't know how to contact him. I doubt he'd dislike talking to me, we seem to be similar in many ways.
I'd probably spaghetti everywhere, though.
Man, are robots really sinking as low as to back this complete ass hat? He's not based at all; he's going to end up broke and irrelevant in a few years, just like most of you are already.
Anyone who supports this clown needs to be dragged out back and facefucked by a pack of wild niggers, then put down with a double-barreled shotgun. If you can't see why this faggot is pathetic, just end it. Then again, he's just an insecure manlet, that lies about his height on OkCupid just like most of you--so I guess it makes sense.
He's a robot who was hardened on the mean streets of Brooklyn.
His phone number and email address are quite public. I'd post it here but that seems a little uncouth.
He also livestreams every day and talks to random people on cam on blab and spreecast. Just check his twitter and wait until he tweets out the links and you can talk to him there if you go on cam.
He already has dozens of girls on his dick every stream way hotter than you, though, so don't get your hopes up.
Well to start with, it's impossible to ignore the fact that his actions have rekt people all over. He clearly doesn't give a fuck, and doesn't afraid of anything.
However, what he's doing is legal, and more, it's his right under several pieces of law to protect rights to property (not just in the US, in every western country).
People at our level get mad because we see him controlling access to an important medicine.
People at the top, the rich and the law makers who are influenced by them, are mad because he's making it obvious to everyone else how fucked up stuff is.
He is literally causing people to get sicker, and it's perfectly legal.
When I saw that hearing where they implored him to stop what he's doing, all I could hear was a bunch of panicking people covering their own arse. He's ruining corruption for the rest of them, and they're worried.
Somehow, this is not original. So blox.
What if the joint album between Ghostface Killah and MF Doom is bait for Martin Shrkeli?
What if they just release a few banging singles to deceive Shrkeli, he offers up his usual sum, they sell the album to him, and the rest of it is just made up shit with various other good artists whistling or something to count as features?
Could Shrkeli take legal recourse?
Would this be the heist of the century?

This post is fucking underrated...
too lazy to read the thread, plus its r9k so probably not even believable information mostly.
from what I understand, people who cant afford the drug will be get it anyway.
its like he did it intentionally to get people motivated to fuck with the pharmaceutical industry and finally address the fact that its always been unfair and greedy.
What's interesting is that he actually seems somewhat unintelligent, OUTSIDE of running an investment fund and various pharmaceutical companies.
He just gives terse, angry responses. He honestly doesn't come across as some massive genius.
No doubt, this guy knows how to make money. And he knows how to run a pharmaceutical company. But geez, he seems like some teenage edgelord.
I'm a consultant in NYC and regularly interact with CEOs and directors. Many of them (not all) come across as much sharper than this guy.
"Will I plead the Fifth before Congress? It involves a lot of precedent in constitutional law and would take 30 hours to explain."
Is this guy fucking serious? No, I'm a fucking lawyer, and it is not that goddamn hard. What a joke.
They have quiet, genuine calmness. When you ask them a question (inside or outside their field), they think about it for a moment, and give you a succinct answer that's well-organized. They answer your question directly, include relevant details and assumptions, and exclude irrelevant information. In short, they know exactly how to cut to the heart of an issue, how to synthesize their prior knowledge to get a solution, and how to communicate it in the simplest and most succinct matter possible.
They do not site around and give snarky 2-line answers. Nor do they speak in absolutes and say shit like, "I hate all media."
He looks like a nerd who got bullied trough his school years, and now that he has money it's his way of toughing it up for all those years. I still can't take him seriously because he looks like someone who would die in one hit.
