    This session is centered directly on the diametrically-opposed viewpoints of strategic drug pricing. How are prices set? How should they be set? What's the balance between capitalism, good economics, corporate interests, and altruism? Do these paradigms apply to both established and emerging markets? What are the legal frameworks surrounding these decisions? What are the ethical debates underpinning these decisions? What are the legal ramifications of approaching it incorrectly?
