kitten corner: greed

now, i am just a kitten and not a big important WHO official, but it seems to me that if they grant patent waivers and allow generic vaccines right away then the companies that invented these drugs and got them to market so quickly cannot recoup their investments and make a good return on capital.

do you think that maybe that would make them less willing to invest so much time and money and delay or forgo other projects to solve a problem like this next time?

because it seems like maybe they might.

i’m pretty sure they remember stuff like that.
