EVENT: AMERICAN ENTERPRISE INSTITUTE holds a conference on International Pharmaceutical Markets: Value, Pricing, and Access. Pharmaceutical research has generated a string of breakthrough drugs, saving millions of lives and drastically improving quality of life. Ongoing research promises more innovation in the next decade. However, such drugs raise difficult issues in pricing, especially in developing nations. Drug manufacturers charge much lower prices in developing nations but worry about reshipment to rich countries. Poor nations use the World Trade Organization negotiation process to seek the right to manufacture or import generic versions of patented drugs. These actions could blunt research incentives.
