The Sperm-Supply Problem

11/17/08 - Freakonimics by Daniel Hamermesh   --> Source
Supply and demand is upset by possible liability.

There’s a shortage of sperm in Britain! Apparently, Britain needs donations for about 4,000 women per year; to reach that number, about 500 sperm donors per year are required, while only 300 are currently registered.

Things were fine until 2005, when a law was enacted allowing children of sperm donors the right at age 18 to discover the identity of their father; simultaneously, the number of women who could use the same donor’s sperm was limited further.
