What Money Can't Buy

The Moral Limits of Markets

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Should we pay children to read books or to get good grades? Should we allow corporations to pay for the right to pollute the atmosphere? Is it ethical to pay people to test risky new drugs or to donate their organs? What about hiring mercenaries to fight our wars? Auctioning admission to elite universities? Selling citizenship to immigrants willing to pay?
In What Money Can't Buy, Michael J. Sandel takes on one of the biggest ethical questions of our time: Is there something wrong with a world in which everything is for sale? If so, how can we prevent market values from reaching into spheres of life where they don't belong? What are the moral limits of markets?
In recent decades, market values have crowded out nonmarket norms in almost every aspect of life—medicine, education, government, law, art, sports, even family life and personal relations. Without quite realizing it, Sandel argues, we have drifted from having a market economy to being a market society. Is this where we want to be?In his New York Times bestseller Justice, Sandel showed himself to be a master at illuminating, with clarity and verve, the hard moral questions we confront in our everyday lives. Now, in What Money Can't Buy, he provokes an essential discussion that we, in our market-driven age, need to have: What is the proper role of markets in a democratic society—and how can we protect the moral and civic goods that markets don't honor and that money can't buy?

Customer Reviews

Awesome read

Better than Justice!! Highly Recommend!

Needed to be written!!!!

Excellent material, relevant and necessary for people worldwide. These are topics I've often thought about, Sandel puts the words properly into context. There are many laugh out loud moments too, which is rare for philosophy. I would recommend this to anyone who thinks the markets need more evaluating.

돈에 의해 밀려나는 가치들

이 책의 제일 마지막 이야기애는 skyboxification 이라는 말이 나온다.
우리는 많은 가치들을 돈으로 사고 팔려고 하였고 그것이 마치 스키이박스의 안쪽 사람과 바깥쪽 사람처럼 계층간의와 교류를 없앤다.
그것이 다양한 계층이 조화를 이루며 살아야 할 민주사회를 만들어 내지 못하게 하고 모든 계층에게 그리 만족스럽지 못한 사회를 만들어 내고 있다.
마이클 샌델의 날카로운 지적에 고개가 끄덕여진다.
