Drug Prices in Taiwan Are Too Low

2016 - 10 - 28

In U.S, there usually is a co-payment charged at the pharmacies for most prescription drugs. Even for one or two generic drugs, you are paying tens of dollars.

美國人看醫生拿處方箋,到藥局領藥多半都有自負額 (co-payment),而且金額還不低;一次門診即便只是開給你普通的學名藥一兩種,進了藥局都得噴掉幾十鎂,萬一是仍在專利期內的原廠藥或罕病藥就更別提了。所以,真的有不少窮老美在看完醫生、確認完藥價後,就低頭抱病回家養病了;畢竟如果真的掏錢買藥,小孩就會沒飯吃、繳不起學費啊!

Brand-name drug prices rose an average just over 11% a year from 2011 to 2015




What’s Happening With Drug Prices?

hTC and India

hTC has partnered with India-based phone distributor Global Devices Network to initiate its production plan in India. 「……宏達電將攜手印度手機經銷商 Global Devices Network 啟動印度製造計畫,然而,不只宏達電,三星、小米、微軟等廠商都將眼光看向印度智慧手機市場,宏達電能藉此起死回生,又或只是換在另一紅海沉浮還未可知。」 我就講能講的部分好了。 1. 不論量衝上多少支,hTC在高度競爭的市場都賣不出可以看的毛利,接下來我們已見即將在印度發生的流血惡戰更將逼它敗走切腹。在減除直接成本、折舊攤提、行銷費用、以及其他overhead後,依我粗估,倘若真的進軍那兒的話,前幾年平均連5毛台幣的稅後都貢獻不出來,在財報數字上根本幫不了忙。您就別問前幾年之後了,那時hTC在餅圖上還看不看得到位子都不知道。 2. 這家公司向來的問題,在於獲致初步成功後所養成的從上到下的自大、驕氣、與目中無人;這一點到目前依舊沒變,要怎麼好起來?股價750元時,我就已對幾位有公信力的朋友公開講它將掉到150元,事後也證明在那個價位上下停留最久。 3. 瞎猜ASUS要併購它的人根本完全不懂併購的核心思考與技術;hTC想要活下去再取得市場的信任,只能靠自己,作打掉重練的調整,以內容帶硬體、從應用帶硬體,都是可以揣摩的方向。畢竟,從全球的角度,當前舉目所及,沒半個人會對它出手。 我從多年前就確認宏達電已走向墮落,也持續痛責它的幾位領導人不適任,在我部落格裡罵得更凶;但這一切都純粹是基於客觀的評估。在主觀上,我仍誠心祈願這個台灣品牌更好。
