"IMO, if Moderna does not get supply
contracts pretty damn soon, they could end up with the best vaccine in
the world and nobody who can afford it to sell it to (again assuming
multiple vaccines are approved). That leaves countries that cannot
afford it to sell it to."
They were totally business stupid with their pricing. After Pfizer made their deal for $19.5 they should have taken the hint that anything much more than that would make them look like price gougers and will not give them a deal, especially that their vaccine and that of Pfizer are almost identical and they are the ones that received Government money to start with. They could have possibly negotiated for $21 or so but anything more was going to create a problem... Their business person should be fired...
Had they made a deal with the US to sell them 100 million doses, MRNA would now be trading well over $100...
