Kidneys in Iran

Here I talked about the price of a kidney.

This article from the Cato Institute discusses the usual arguments in favor of a kidney market, which I find very persuasive. The interesting point of this article is that it claims to have found a working example of a kidney market, in Iran. Yes, leave it to Cato to dig for the good examples. Apparently, Iran has a compensation scheme for kidneys and according to the author, this has all sorts of good effects.

Thanks to Aaron for showing this to me.
