Kidney Markets and Exchanges

Lynne Kiesling

I see that Mike and I are both reading Market Design today … I liked Al Roth’s post on Virginia Postrel’s kidney exchange article in the Atlantic that came out last week. In addition to his highly complimentary commentary on Virginia’s article, which I recommend, he reviews some of the other press coverage of kidney exchange institutions and finds that coverage … confused.

Roth has done a lot of work on kidney exchange, and this post is a good introduction to that work.
