    Story
    (89)

    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 analysis but no real solutions"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of What Money Can't Buy to be better than the print version?

    One advantage of the audio version is it is read by the author who is a very popular and distinguished Harvard professor, so it is as though you are in his class.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Makes you consider where we should draw the line of what should and should not be bought.


    Any additional comments?

    The author says repeatedly that we have had no public discourse about this issue and we should start a national dialogue about it, etc, but it is unclear what exactly that means. Should we start writing editorials, talk about it on TV news stations, or what? Where would the solution to this problem lie?
