April 2012: Michael Sandel discusses his new book, What Money Can't Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets
On April 23, 2012, Michael Sandel (Harvard University, Government) will discuss his new book, What Money Can't Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets. In the book, Professor Sandel argues that markets have not only become disconnected from morals, but have also extended too deeply into new and potentially inappropriate spheres of life. Citing examples like for-profit hospitals and advertising in schools, Professor Sandel suggests a need for setting moral limits on the reach of market-thinking.
Co-sponsored by Harvard Book Store, the Mahindra Humanities Center, the Tobin Project, and the Center for American Political Studies, the event will be held at 7PM at the First Parish Church in Cambridge. Tickets cost $5 and are available online or at the Harvard Book Store.
