    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?

    Kristopher says: "Great introduction to the world of ethics"
    "Interesting, but not enagaging"

    What would have made What Money Can't Buy better?

    It would have been nice for the book to have led up to a point of when and how to use, and not to use markets to in our economy


    What was most disappointing about Michael J. Sandel???s story?

    There was no overarching point it the series of anecdotes in the books


    What three words best describe Michael J. Sandel???s voice?

    Voice was fine, content was the problem


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from What Money Can't Buy?

    The explanations where longer than needed to make the point


    Any additional comments?

    Heard the author on C-Span and was expecting a more insightful analysis of how and when to use markets. Instead, got a series of drawn out anecdotes mostly on fringe topics.
