Ever since I found out about the revolutionary potential of bitcoin, I've been ruminating on how the hypothetical AnCapistan will deal with certain issues.
After reading this article about a 17y.o. that sold his kidney to buy an iPad 2
-I was thinking that if I needed a transplant I'd rather not get it from a kid who might not know the implications of his decisions.
So I was wondering if the market can come up with a more "humane" way of providing organs for those in need. It would be possible for a car/life insurance company to offer reduced premiums in exchange for your organs if you die in a car crash. Depending on the price of organs as dictated by the market, you might not even need to pay car/life insurance anymore. This could be very beneficial to young people as they have relatively higher insurance premiums.
What do you think of this idea?
