Could market design have saved Mr. Vilasrao Deshmukh?

This is not just about Mr. Vilasrao Deshmukh but several other Indians who die because of unavailability of organs for transplant..

This blog is a big fan of works of Prof. Al Roth of Harvard University (his super blog here). He has been advocating designing markets for repugnant goods like kidney etc. His work falls under the category  “market design”

Is it time for application of Prof Roth’s works in India as well and have a formal market for the same (there is already an illegal market though)? I wrote an article on the same a while ago. What do others think?

Meanwhile, I am revisiting Prof Roth’s works as lot of water has flown in the river since the last article..
