    After spending hundreds of millions on R&D on dozens of drugs that failed after years of clinical trials I have finally developed a miracle drug that will cure cancer. It will save millions from the misery of chemotherapy, not to mention spending their life savings with no guarantee of being cured. The burden on medical professionals will be greatly relieved, hospital beds available for the treatment of others.
    Because I want $20,000 per pill I'm just a price gouger?

    False, with governments printing worthless paper, the only true international currency is gold.

    Not hardly; it takes decades and MILLIONS of dollars to bring a drug to market with the current FDA


    No, it isn't gouging, even in a hurricane. Go back and watch that video I posted. When Joe raises his prices, only those who truly need it will buy it; with high prices and high profit potentials, more people will bring those products into the area, thus making more available to everyone and will thus reduce prices. basic ECON 101

    Store them in a 90 deg. shed, garage, or attic for 5 years, and act as if they left the store recently? That's deception, and gouging if the seller does not disclose.

    Reveal when they were purchased, and how they've been stored. We are talking about full market value, right?
