Abstract

Thousands of people die every year because of lack of blood supply. The chief cause of this lack of blood supply is the sole reliance on voluntary blood donations, and the demonization of blood trade. This paper makes a case for a free market blood supply. It shows how blood trade will benefit everyone.
