We Favor a Freer Market in Kidneys
By William Barnett II
Michael Saliba

Deborah Walker

This article appeared in the Spring 2003 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

Contra Brooks, the Barnett-Saliba-Walker analysis was not intended to justify the government’s acting as a payer-of-last-resort. A totally free market in kidneys—one without government subsides and without the prohibition of sale and purchase of kidneys, but also without other currently imposed supply-restricting interventions—would meet Brooks’s efficiency concerns and would be more equitable than the current system.
