Nobel Prize Conversations
Should you be able to buy a kidney? Economic sciences laureate Alvin Roth would call that, and other taboo exchanges, repugnant transactions. Roth pioneered ways of describing outlier markets where prices don’t work, explaining why you can’t buy a job at Google, acceptance at Yale – or a human organ.
This Nobel Prize conversation was conducted in March 2020. The host of the podcast is nobelprize.org’s Adam Smith.
