Martin Shkreli: The Compassionate Hedge Fund CEO

ceo filled

Martin Shkreli: raising the price of Daraprim from $13.50 to $750 per pill was a business move that in the long run would help the patients. [Except that, “in the long run”, the patients don’t have the time to wait to see how the price increase is beneficial to them.]

Does he has guilty feelings or sense of shame?

“So the spotlight on me is an interesting thing, I’m not thinking too hard about it because I know what we’re doing is right.”

As the New York Times reports, the 32-year-old made his name thanks to a hedge fund he started called MSMB. While there, he urged the Food and Drug Administration to not approve drugs made by pharmaceutical companies he was shorting.

Standards of ALTRUISM of Wall Street hedge funds, as shown by this guy:

defending a 5,000 percent overnight cost increase on a drug as “not excessive at all,” saying that the increase is actually “altruistic.”

A student of Bill Clinton? When dealing with these vultures, you better carry your legal dictionary with you:

“Why was it necessary to raise the price of Daraprim so drastically?” CBS reporter Don Dahler asked Shkreli.

“Well, it depends on how you define so drastically.

The compassionate heart of a hedge fund CEO:

That suit also alleges that Shkreli threatened a former MSMB employee, even saying he would “do everything he can” to assure that the former employee and his four children would be homeless.


When the Buddha said that there is “no soul”, he was referring to these heartless, soulless excuse for human beings.

If you have any problem understanding the Buddha’s statement that greed is the poison of humanity, just study the personality of each hedge fund CEOs. They personify ‘greed’, and the consequences, the KARMA of their actions, fall on the rest of US.

Voting helps, but more powerful is a change in attitude to eradicate this worm eating our hearts. Stop the love affair with money.
