DESCRIPTION

Part I – (this draws on opportunity cost (Ch 1) and markets (Ch 3))

Describe the market for kidney organs, as it would be in a free market without government intervention, using what you have learned about scarcity, marginal analysis in decision-making, and markets. You must include a discussion of resources, supply and demand, as well as marginal benefits and marginal costs. Think of this as an explanation of the pros and cons of the market using economic terminology.

Describe the benefits and costs but leave the discussion of organ rationing and other solutions to the problems in this market for the next part. Describe this market using supply and demand; reference your graph in your description. Include “graph 1” of this market at the end of the paper (not included in page count). This should be a discussion without mentioning Price Controls, only discuss  how the kidney organ market would be without government intervention. Feel free to use any stats or data that you find through your own research – make sure you use econ terminology.

Part II – (this draws on  government (Ch 4) to improve the discussion made in Part I)

Consider the reasons why the market for kidney organs is not a free market in the US, specifically discuss equity concerns. Expand on your discussion of the market from Part I, using what you have learned about government interventions/price controls.

Discuss the current government intervention in the Kidney Market in the U.S. Describe this market – comparing the free market and to the government intervention in one graph – using supply and demand; reference and discuss your graph in your paper. Explain the current government intervention and exactly how it corrects the problems of the free market. Include any other beneficial aspects of the intervention that you find through your own research – make sure you use econ terminology throughout.

Also discuss other Donation Systems Around the World, no need to add a graph here. Explore the policies that are currently implemented across the globe (i.e. those discussed in the articles – routine removal, presumed consent, organ donor points, “no give, no take”, etc.). Evaluate the limitations of these policies. Also consider how these policies fare in terms of the efficiency vs. equity debate. (You do not need to critique them all, just select 2 or 3 that you find interesting/appealing.)

FORMATTING

The body of the text (NO header/footers/by lines, separate – title/graph/bibliography page)  for the rough draft must be at least 4 full pages (it is best if you write onto the 5th page to be sure you meet the minimum, keep in mind more pages will be added later for the final draft), double-spaced, 1″ margins, and size 12 Arial FONT. File type must be doc OR docx.

Make sure to include a title page and an updated bibliography page (both should be on their own pages and not share a page with the body of the text and are not included in the page count). Graphs/Charts/Figures/Bibliography should be at the very end of the text and are not included in page count. Only use in-line citations with the author and the year in parentheses at the end of the sentence; do not include citations in the footers. The full citation should be given on the bibliography page only.
