Creating R&D Incentives for Medicines for Neglected by Frank Müller-Langer (auth.)

By Frank Müller-Langer (auth.)

Virtually no study is concentrated at constructing medications for tropical illnesses because the anticipated industry returns from R&D into those ailments within the inner most prescribed drugs area are too low. Frank Müller-Langer addresses the industry failure with appreciate to R&D for medications for tropical illnesses and the shortcoming of momentary entry to cheap medicinal drugs in bad international locations. the writer analyzes extra push and pull mechanisms to stimulate R&D for pharmaceutical items along patent safety that can aid mitigate the matter of these shoppers in terrible international locations who lack entry to reasonable drugs. additionally, he purposes worldwide regime of banning parallel exchange from low-income international locations to high-income nations is fascinating from a constructing country’s perspective.

Example text

Thus, if Player 2 swerves, the best thing for Player 1 to do is to drive straight. As Player 1 has an incentive to deviate from (Swerve, Swerve), it is not a Nash equilibrium. Second, what should Player 1 do when Player 2 chooses to drive straight? If he chooses to swerve, he will generate a payoff of –1, and a payoff of –100 if he drives straight. Clearly the best strategy for Player 1 is to swerve given that Player 2 drives straight. Hence, given that Player 2 drives straight Player 1 has no incentive to deviate from the strategy “Swerve”.

This payoff is independent of p, so player 1 cannot do better in terms of expected payoff no matter what he chooses. As the game is symmetrical, the same logic applies to the choice of Player 2. 34 3 Economic Analysis of Patents To sum up, the game of chicken has two Nash equilibria in pure strategies that generate Pareto efficient outcomes: (Drive straight, Swerve), and (Swerve, Drive straight). Nevertheless, suppose now that the two players mentioned above are not drivers but two pharmaceutical companies that are both engaged in research into the same drug yet to be developed.
