Rarely has the dark side of greed been on such public display as the revelation that Martin Shkreli, former CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals, raised the price of the drug Daraprim by more than $700 a pill. This was an extreme example of manipulating the marketplace but, lost in all the outrage about Mr. Shkreli, was the real story – prescription drug costs might not be increasing by $700 a pill, but they are going up much faster than the overall inflation rate. This is causing financial hardships for millions of Americans.
