Martin Shkreli on Drug Price Hikes and Playing the World’s Villain
After following the Martin Shkreli story for a while, this is his first, proper “social” interview that has dropped. Do I still think he’s a bit of a nerdy douche? Yes.
Do I think that Allie Conti does a very bad job of interviewing him as some people have said? No. I think her angle was to allow Shkreli to talk rather than react and having done that, I think it provides us with a more complete look at one of the most talked about people in the world today.
Does this allow him to skim past some of the darker parts of his company dealings? Absolutely. It does however also provide him with a chance to state his case somewhat and make a few points that reveal this case to be rather more complex than the “here be a very bad man” routine presented by most media outlets.
