dc.description.abstractTypically, when two people decide to become parents, they procreate by copulation andproduce a child. What do people do if, for some reason, they can?t produce their own childrenbut want to be parents? Today, a prospective parent can go to the web, drop a vial of spermfrom a donor with specific selected characteristics into a ?shopping cart? and have that spermdelivered in twenty-four hours. Similarly, one can sift through the profiles and pictures ofwomen who are egg donors and select eggs from women with desired characteristics andarrange an egg delivery. These markets are two segments that loosely fall under the rubric ofAssisted Reproduction Technologies (ART), which is a shorthand term for the numerousprocedures aided by technology used to produce a baby. This primer in the economics ofassisted reproduction introduces some of the economic dilemmas brought about by newreproductive technologies. Now the cost of producing children can radically differ amongpeople of similar incomes and values because a prospective parent may have to pay to gainrights to the genetic components that build the child.en_US
