A Free Market in Kidneys: Efficient and Equitable
By William Barnett II
Michael Saliba

Deborah Walker

This article appeared in the Winter 2001 issue of The Independent Review


The National Organ Transplant Act of 1984 prohibits the purchase and sale of kidneys in the United States even though thousands of Americans die or suffer each year because of the ban. A free market in kidneys, along with third-party payers, would encourage kidney donations and give rise to market competition that would increase the quality of transplants and the transplant process.
