This thought experiment is from the latest ExI newsletter...

QUIZ 1) NeuroChem Solutions, Inc. has beaten rivals to the market with its new superdrug Cogniply. You've been following the clinical development fairly closely and know that Cogniply went through extensive safety and effectiveness testing. You're pretty sure that, as in 98% of test subjects, if you take Cogniply your amygdala and other brain structures will develop more neuro connections over a few months of treatment. Benefits include improved concentration and memory retention. Although you can easily afford this treatment, you know that at least half the population cannot afford the current cost of Cogniply. Would you:

a) Go ahead without hesitation and start taking Cogniply and not concern yourself with anything other than the effects on yourself;

b) Go ahead and take Cogniply, reasonablely confident that the cost will come down over time like everything else;

c) Take Cogniply with some concern, since you want the benefits, but feel an obligation to do what you can to encourage the accelerated availability of generics perhaps even to push for subsidies to spread its affordability; or

d) Refuse to take Cogniply and discourage others from taking it on the grounds that it's an unfair advantage or that it simply raises competition to another level.
