Third Vice Paper!

OK, if  things go according to plan, I will be presenting a vice policy paper in May, 2015, so I have to start writing one. Here are my first two self-imposed deadlines:

(1) Short Description of Paper: Wednesday, January 14, 2015
(2) Draft One: Wednesday, February 18, 2015.

Off we go.....

Kidney Update

The (second) kidney paper was written and presented, has been revised, and needs to be revised some more. My goal is to finish the revisions by the end of January and to post the resulting paper on SSRN. Then we will think about potential publishing outlets. Incidentally, the first kidney paper is now published. So, that is the kidney plan for the nonce: revised version, not too embarrassing, due on January 31.

I should report that I have yet to tackle the book I mentioned in the previous post, Sex Cells: The Medical Market for Eggs and Sperm, by Rene Almeling. I don't think that I will be able to get to it in the next few months, alas.
