NBER market design meeting today through Saturday on Zoom

The NBER market design conference is on Zoom this year, today through Saturday, starting each day at noon Eastern time (9am Pacific time).  I'll be speaking today at 2:45 EST (11:45 PST), about a new proposal for global kidney exchange using chains that begin overseas and end in the U.S., and about the background and history to this proposal, which initially met with considerable opposition.

2:45 pm
Mohammad Akbarpour, Stanford University
Afshin Nikzad, University of Southern California
Michael A. Rees, University of Toledo Medical Center
Alvin E. Roth, Stanford University and NBER
Global Kidney Chains
