This paper considers the following policy questions: 1) should the significance of geography in organ allocation be further mitigated? 2) in deference to both equity and efficiency, should age be an explicit criterion in organ allocation? and 3) in deference to efficiency, should calculations of net benefit be included as a criterion in the allocation of kidneys, as well as other organs?
