All scientist will be paid a large sum upfront by WHO governments for their breakthrough, and all drug manufacturing becomes a government service instead of a for profit industry. Cost of medication sold to the public will only be to maintain the cost of production and material.

As well as no lobbying or patenting rights to medication. And who, exactly, will pay the 2-4 billion cost for the development, testing and making of any new drug? And if you leave it to the government 90% of all new drugs will NEVER be manufactured because you will have faceless bureaucrats making a decision as to whether or not a drug is needed. Remember, these are the same people who think that you only need new computers every twenty years or so.

Work on improving living conditions that frequently lead to drug abuse? Yes! Your post seems to suggest that you don’t value the lives of people suffering from addiction. I hope that I’m wrong.

Death taxes. You should be able to earn as much as you want with fairly minimal income taxes. However, you should only be able to leave say 10 million per dependent, all the rest should go to healthcare/education etc. I think this might be the best way to reduce wealth inequality without penalizing people for being productive. Inherited wealth doesn't do society OR those who inherit massive unearned fortunes good in the long run imo.
