*** There's the possibility that PharmaKom could have created the cure, treatment and the disease. Yes, Spider says its information overload caused by the technology around them. But if that were the case, we'd be seeing something similar to it now or everyone in the world of the story would have it. It makes more sense that the disease was also developed by PharmaKom and they released it, giving out false information as the cause of it. Just tossing that idea out there.
*** If [=PharmaKom=] had intentionally created and released the plague from the start (as well as already possessed a cure), it begs serious questions why [=PharmaKom=] wouldn't have first distributed their cure to protect and immunize themselves, their ranking executives and employees, and their own families at the expense of the rest of the world's prolonged suffering. If Takahashi's own daughter had contracted and succumbed to the fatal virus, then, logically, the rest of the corporation's work force and their loved ones are just as susceptible, and [=PharmaKom=]'s determination to make themselves suffer from their own unleashed plague is flat out stupid, self-destructive, and suicidal behavior.

*** What's this have to do with [=PharmaKom=] not making a cure they created available to themselves, even if they didn't want anybody else to have it? Nevertheless, this here is an entirely moot point without a ''concrete'' explanation for ''how'' an economic analysis actually reaches such a conclusion. The film itself establishes both that (1) the prices for treatments are so exorbitantly high that millions of people already struggle to afford them, and (2) even Takahashi's daughter--someone with a wealthy/important enough parent who ''could'' afford to give her the best possible access to the treatments--still dies from the disease. How could their treatments possibly remain profitable if their consumer base can only ''shrink''? Even raising their prices won't solve anything because the treatments are already unaffordable to the vast majority of people who desperately need them, and the very few privileged elites remaining who could possibly afford them die off, anyway.

*** 50% the entire global population is suffering from a deadly plague, and the only economic sense is in selling a medicine that only 10 million people[[note]]This number would comprise less than 4% of the total number of people who would have contracted NAS, if we'd base population figures on 2017 global census data[[/note]] can afford?! Chuck out any numbers you want. Selling a cure to merely 1 billion people for just $240 dollars-a-piece could yield the same $240 billion in return (as well as preserve the lives of 990 million more people to sustain broader socio-economic human productivity around the world, opposed to limiting the scope of humanity to the comparative size of just a single densely populated metropolitan area).

Chuck out any numbers you want. Selling a cure medicine to merely 1 2 billion people for just $240 dollars-a-piece 1% of the $240,000 figure you're putting out could just as well yield the same $240 billion twice as much cash in return (as well as preserve help the lives of 990 million more 200x as many people to sustain broader socio-economic human productivity around the world, opposed to limiting the scope of humanity to the comparative size of just a single densely populated metropolitan area).

*** Could one even ''find'' 10 million people who can pay out nearly a quarter-of-a-million bucks for any sort of routine expense every year? $240,000 would be nearly the entire annual income for the top 1.5% wealthiest households, based on current US tax brackets. The rich gotta eat and have to meet other essential expenses, too, you know?

*** Could one even ''find'' 10 million people who can pay out nearly a quarter-of-a-million bucks for any sort of routine expense every year? $240,000 would still be nearly a very significant slice of the entire annual income for even the top 1.5% wealthiest households, based on current US earners in the highest income tax brackets.brackets in the United States and other developed countries (even comprising more than half of the US President's annual salary). The rich gotta eat and have to meet other essential expenses, too, you know?
