An Economist's Perspective

It's important to note that this whole lecture is given from the perspective of an economist. The moral and ethical consideration are set aside to look at the cost/benefits of allowing a market place for organ harvesting.

With that in mind, Dr. Taylor does a great job of vividly describing the medical and modern historical contexts of selling organs in the US. His background is thorough and his discussion of the economics is robust. Thirty minutes well spent.
