What Money Can’t Buy December 28, 2013

I just finished reading What Money Can’t Buy, a thought provoking book by Michael Sandel, a Government Professor at Harvard University. His recent work discusses how pretty much everything in our world now has a market value. Many of the things that can be bought and sold may astound you – it did me.

Today we see everything from “branded” police cars, stadiums and subway stations to “purchased friends” that raise one’s popularity on Facebook. Are there certain things in life that should have no price?

Dr. Sandel does a fantastic job of providing pro/con arguments about some of the most pressing moral arguments in our time.

Is everything for sale? Why not pick up a copy and share your opinions.
