As for the ethical issue, the black market shows that people are going to buy and sell organs anyway, despite the illegality of the practice.As a result of this situation, a global black market in human organs has developed.Organ Watch and other organizations have reported that more than 80 percent of the poor people who have donated organs in the international black market have experienced serious health problems as a result (McLaughlin, et al.Obviously, it would be much better for the practice to be regulated, the donors fairly compensated, and the corrupt nature of the black market removed.Such a system would help somewhat in alleviating the current organ shortage, while at the same time reducing the opportunities for corruption and e...

As written by Alex Tabarrok in his article ‘Financial Compensation for Organ Donors is Working’ in Marginal Revolution, “Only one country in the world has eliminated the shortage of transplant kidneys.“There is absolutely no evidence of such activity ever occurring in the U.S. or any other industrialized country,” says the United Network for Organ Sharing, “While the tale sounds credible enough to some listeners, it has no basis in the reality of organ transplantation.” While there is no evidence of this actually happening, there is constant debate over the legalization of kidney trade.The receiver of the ‘new’ kidney is provided with highly subsidized immunosuppression and charitable organizations allow those unable to pay for the trans...

(Steffen G. S. and Candelaria S. M. 2003) In 1989, the United States intervened in Panama with the goal of disrupting the drug trade coming from Panama.Despite the US government’s official position against the drug trade, US government agents and assets have been implicated in the drug trade.Some governments that criminalize drug trade have a policy of interfering heavily with foreign states.Since the drug transaction itself is illegal, any participants in the trade are by definition criminal.In the 2005 United Nations World Drug Report, the value of the global illicit drug market for the year 2003 was estimated at US$13 billion at the production level, at US$94 billion at the wholesale level, and US$322–$400 billion based on retail pric...

Organ transplantation is carried out by taking a healthy organ from a body, either dead or alive and transferring the organ to another person in order to replace a failed or deteriorating organ.Furthermore, organ trade raises many ethical questions where we have already witnessed not only human kidneys, but also liver lobes, in the market commodities in Bangladesh.Organ transplantation in recent years has revolutionised health care and transformed the lives of people suffering from organ failure and diseases once thought of as incurable.In order to make human organ trade more ethically justifiable the answers are through cadaveric organ donations, xenotransplantation, bioengineering and dialysis.Since the whole human organ trade system i...

In order to more quickly start saving more lives, we should prioritize the creation of a legal market of properly regulated commodification of kidneys instead of arguing over the possible undesirable consequences of such a market.I will conclude with the assertion that a legal market could mitigate the large number of black market activities that already exist, and that commodification would in no way devalue our humanity or our culture of liberty, but would rather place a greater value on freedom by demonstrating a respect for individuals’ rational choices regarding kidney donation.Many people claim that the growth of black market activity is induced by financial incentives of kidney transplantation, but I would argue that an equal forc...

While it is true that majority of sellers will be from poor countries and buyers will be from developed nations, the sale of organs will still continue to occur through the black market.The black market is the primary source for the organs used in these procedures.The black market thrives because there is no legal forum for buying and selling organs and it can therefore by projected that this market would become irrelevant if a legitimate market for human organs was established.The black market is unregulated and the manner in which organs are obtained is at times dreadful.In addition to this, traders in the black market seldom give the donors a fair share of money from the organ sale.

Meaning that the rich people that could afford to buy an organ would live and the poor or poverty stricken people would die more often.Data collected from India’s kidney market showed that 86% of all donors had health issues after they donated an organ.Another problem is legalizing organ selling will create an unlevel playing field.If something is not done about the long waiting list for organ donations, the black market will continue to thrive on the illegal transplants that are happening every day.However if the organ trade was legalized it could cause major health problems for many of the donors, and even some for the recipients since most of the transplants occur in poverty stricken countries with poor medical facilities.

Medical surgeons everywhere are calling the government to have them legalize the sale of organs for transplants; allowing people to sell their organs would help people by meeting their financial expenses, solve the lack of supply, save many lives, and get control of the black market.Donating an organ can help the people that are in need, but that isn’t enough.A regulated market should be permitted so that the black market is at least reduced.Having a regulated market would stop patients from going to other countries to get transplants they can’t get in the United States.Many will say that legalizing organs will lead to exploitation, and cause unfair advantages, but these things are already happening in the black market organ trades.

There are sources of tracking errors: hedge is not exactly the theoretical one; volatility is different from the expected volatility on the average; and high volatility especially repeated large up and down moves in a net flat market.The shortcomings of these models were demonstrated in the crash of 1987 which showed that market volatility is not constant across time (Fuentes).Although these models were simple they did not account for some of the characteristics of the real financial market data, and hence were not accurate.The market crash of 1987 has been known as Black Monday.This was followed by the Black and Scholes (1973) model for option pricing.
