Martin Shkreli is showing how the finance world is ticking

Ever thought about how far away finance people are from the normal folks? Take a look to "Martin Shkreli" and see how they are ticking.
Instead of solving world problems to the earth a better place, he increased the price of "Daraprim" from 13.05 to 750 US $ .

[...]
Daraprim is used to treat toxoplasmosis, a condition caused by a parasite that exists in nearly a quarter of the U.S. population over age 12, but which can prove deadly for the unborn children of pregnant women and for immunocompromised individuals like AIDS patients. These vulnerable populations will now have to pay over 5,000 percent more for their treatment.

Of course, politicians are telling you that they can not do anything ... they could, but they don't want to.
But before throwing stones to Mr. Shkreli, think about that he is "just one of them all". There are even more finance people around their how are doing things like that. Instead of doing it the "full force" violence way, we as society need to discuss how we want to go on with our life and the way we are living. I am not writing about shifting to socialism, "just" about putting some more humanism into the way we are acting. Is your new super car really worth the effort of having blood from many peoples on your wheels?
