But the root problem is that if a company makes a medicine, and it costs
$5/pill, if a country has a price control on that so that it can only be
sold there for $2/pill.

The company who makes the medicine has a choice:
1. Don't sell it in that country.
2. Sell it for $2/pill in that country, but sell it for $8/pill in countries
without price controls.
