This paper aims at understanding the reasons for that shortage better and then discusses various ways to overcome it. After estimating the potential supply of donor organs it is discussed why actual supply remains far below potential supply. Insufficient reimbursement for hospitals, a lack of incentives to donate, and mistaken donation rules are diagnosed to cause the shortage. Thus, organ shortage is due not to natural constraints but to inappropriate social institutions. Introducing a presumed consent rule, reciprocity in organ allocation, better payments for hospitals and for donors seem potential remedies.</dcterms:abstract> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Breyer, Friedrich</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Breyer, Friedrich</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-03-23T09:36:09Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:title>The Shortage of Human Organs : Causes, Consequences and Remedies</dcterms:title> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Publ. in: Analyse und Kritik 29 (2007), pp. 188-205</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:creator>Kliemt, Hartmut</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
