is there cronyism between some of the pharm companies and the government? sure, and this case proves it. Remember though, cronyism only exists because of government. The more government regulation, interference, and goodies, the more incentive for business (of any kind) to try to find ways to get into bed with government.
How does this case prove it?
Mylan had one major competitor - that competitor pulled their product from the market because it wasn't working properly (it wasn't injecting a consistent dose). Mylan increased their prices by about 500%.
Demand is static, supply dropped drastically - prices went up. That's basic capitalism.
The argument that this is a problem CAUSED by regulation is absurd. It's a perfect example of how unconstrained markets work best for whoever has the most leverage - not necessarily the consumer.
