The Cost of U.S. Pharmaceutical Price Reduction
Thomas A. Abbott, John Vernon, NBER Working Paper Program No. 11114, 2-1-05

The authors find that pharmaceutical price controls “will significantly diminish the incentives to undertake early stage R&D investment.” They estimate that “cutting prices 40 to 50 percent in the U.S.” will lead firms to have “30 to 60 percent fewer R&D projects” in early-stage development.
