Comparative Advantage

Filipino kidneys cheapest in world black market, says NGO
"Filipino kidneys are the cheapest priced in the thriving global black market in organ sales, according to a non-profit organization against child trafficking."

"...in the Philippines, kidney vendors get a measly $1,500 or roughly P125,000 -- a price 20 times cheaper than those in the United States.

The asking price in the US starts at $30,000 while kidney vendors get as much as $10,000 to $20,000 in Israel; $7,500 in Turkey, $6,000 in Brazil and $2,700 in Moldova and Romania, said Abueva."
Sa Pinas, mas mahal pa ang bato kaysa buhay ng tao.
