Question details

Just looking at the economics of shortages (Schiller, 2016, 59)   and leaving out the moral issues, if there is a shortage of a item, one way or another the market will find equilibrium. If there is a shortage the price of supply will increase and as price increases demand will decrease. But in the case of life saving human organs, the demand is inelastic (119) which means that demand is relatively insensitive to changes in price, which we will cover in the next week or so.

Again the market will always find equilibrium and a shortage will be filled somehow and human organs demand will not decrease significantly with price increases. If supply of organs is curtailed by government control and there is a shortage how will the market find supply and demand equilibrium?    Please search into the black market for human organs,
