Brazilís dangerous denial
Roger Bate, Tech Central Station, 6-27-05

Bate argues that Brazilís threats to issue compulsory licenses for AIDS drugs will damage the research and development of new medicines:

Brazil is in dangerous denial. It denies responsibility for paying for HIV drugs and responsibility over letting its poorest die from entirely preventable water-borne disease. Only those who want fewer HIV drugs can welcome Brazil's actions, everyone else should be worried.
