An Interview With Martin Shkreli

Martin Shkreli is 32 years of age, an entrepreneur, a company builder and is also currently one of the worlds most hated men. Now worth at least $45 million dollars his tale is very much one of a Horatio Alger novel, the son of two janitors from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn who managed to hustle his way into the hedge fund game.

In August of 2015 one of his companies acquired the rights to a drug that treats an infection that effects people with AIDS and other immunodeficiencies, he then made the controversial decision to hike the price of this drug by more than 5000 percent making him the true poster boy for capitalistic greed.

Shkreli is not your typical big pharma tycoon, he seems to like this bad-boy image whereby we see him flaunt his trollish behaviour in the media. He makes for one interesting character and in fairness in this short film he seems to raise some good, yet still controversial reasoning as to why he has raised the price of this drug so much.

    i do not like when interviewers believe that i am in for their own view.

      Don’t know what that means.

        i think my comment landed at the wrong place, it was meant to be referring to an interview with noam chomsky, where the interviewer put in too much of his provocative self and turned an interview into a debate.
