Starred Review for What Money Can’t Buy
Let's kick this post off with some difficult questions...
Should we allow corporations to pay for the right to pollute the atmosphere? Is it ethical to pay people to test risky new drugs? 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?
Kirkus Reviews just gave it a starred review and called it, "An exquisitely reasoned, skillfully written treatise on big issues of everyday life."
WHAT MONEY CAN'T BUY is available now from Farrar, Straus and Giroux.
