What money can’t be purchased by Michael Sandel’s is worthy of notice for the teacher’s technique used. Instead of analytical analysis, Sandel advances his thesis. This procedure seems to compel readers to encounter a series of circumstances in which consumer values have become part of their lives in a way that is morally unacceptable to many. He has tattooed ads on his forehead and charged place holders to discourage him from having to sell human organs for long hours. Sandel states that we never had a proper discussion on the relationship between market-related moral, political, and economic concerns. The Italics are Sandel’s, the only authorial italics in the novel, but he blurs the strength of his views by using the unsound “we” as his focus. “Without realizing anything, without ever deciding to do it, we’ve moved from having a market economy to becoming a market society.” His theme as an integrated community isn’t a personal “we,” The argument is that we have changed from a consumer economy society to a market societyADDIN CSL_CITATION {“citationItems”:[{“id”:”ITEM-1″,”itemData”:{“DOI”:”10.1080/17496535.2014.956986″,”ISSN”:”1749-6535″,”abstract”:”In What Money Can’t Buy, Sandel examines one of the biggest ethical questions of our time\r\nand provokes a debate that’s been missing in our market-driven age: What is the proper role\r\nof markets in a democratic society, and how can we protect the moral and civic goods that\r\nmarkets do not honour and money cannot buy?

The key lack of discussion on the role and scope of markets is in contemporary politics. Are we interested in a capitalist economy or a market society? In public life and personal relations, what role should markets play? How should you decide which items should be purchased and marketed and which non-market principles should apply? Where is money not supposed to run? Even if you believe we can deal with major market moral problems, you might have concerns about the role of our public discourse. This is a valid cause of concern. At a time when the policy debate consists mostly of yelling cable TV matches, political vitriol on talk radio, and congressional ideological food wars it is difficult to imagine a reasoned national dialogue about contentious moral issues like the best way to value child-rearing education, health, the environment, citizenship, and others. I assume that such a discussion is possible, but only when we can expand our public dialogue and engage in conflicting principles of good life more directly. Sandel opens a catalog of things to be purchased in America at least – from predictable (privileged health care access), to bizarre (penitentiary upgrade), to literally obscene (the right to kill an endangered animal). He argues that we lose track of why certain things shouldn’t be in a world where everything can be purchased and sold. In the end, it is a type of corruption that undermines everything including sex and even friendship and loveADDIN CSL_CITATION {“citationItems”:[{“id”:”ITEM-1″,”itemData”:{“DOI”:”10.1080/13563467.2012.647764″,”ISSN”:”13563467″,”author”:[{“dropping-particle”:””,”family”:”Anderson”,”given”:”Elizabeth”,”non-dropping-particle”:””,”parse-names”:false,”suffix”:””}],”container-title”:”New Political Economy”,”id”:”ITEM-1″,”issue”:”2″,”issued”:{“date-parts”:[[“2012″]]},”page”:”239-242″,”title”:”Why Some Things Should Not be for Sale: The Moral Limits of Markets: Debra Satz”,”type”:”article”,”volume”:”17″},”uris”:[“″]}],”mendeley”:{“formattedCitation”:”(Anderson)”,”plainTextFormattedCitation”:”(Anderson)”,”previouslyFormattedCitation”:”(Anderson)”},”properties”:{“noteIndex”:0},”schema”:””}(Anderson).

When the markets are no longer inert, the dilemma is further aggravated. Commodification creates greater inequality and greater corruption opportunities, not only by prizing goods but also by shifting attitudes to certain types of goods. The book indicates that if social goods markets are not more inert, some positive elements in life will be compromised, their moral worth will be reduced, and the survival of a proper society will be threatened. In essence, this increases the need to look closely at these commodities and try, without depriving them of their political and moral importance, to find new ways to value them. A debate about the moral limits of markets will allow us as a society, to determine when and where the markets serve the common goodADDIN CSL_CITATION {“citationItems”:[{“id”:”ITEM-1″,”itemData”:{“author”:[{“dropping-particle”:””,”family”:”Satz”,”given”:”Debra”,”non-dropping-particle”:””,”parse-names”:false,”suffix”:””}],”id”:”ITEM-1″,”issued”:{“date-parts”:[[“2007″]]},”title”:”LIBERALISM, ECONOMIC FREEDOM, AND THE LIMITS OF MARKETS*”,”type”:”report”},”uris”:[“″]}],”mendeley”:{“formattedCitation”:”(Satz)”,”plainTextFormattedCitation”:”(Satz)”,”previouslyFormattedCitation”:”(Satz)”},”properties”:{“noteIndex”:0},”schema”:””}(Satz). When we understand the proper position of markets, we must address the best way to appreciate social products in public together. It would be naive to anticipate that a public dialogue that is much more moral, at its finest, would lead to an agreement on any contentious topic. However, this will make public life better. And that would make us more conscious of the price we pay to live in a society where all is on saleADDIN CSL_CITATION {“citationItems”:[{“id”:”ITEM-1″,”itemData”:{“DOI”:”10.1057/9781137472748.0007″,”ISBN”:”9781137472748″,”author”:[{“dropping-particle”:””,”family”:”Skidelsky”,”given”:”Edward”,”non-dropping-particle”:””,”parse-names”:false,”suffix”:””}],”container-title”:”Are Markets Moral?”,”id”:”ITEM-1″,”issued”:{“date-parts”:[[“2014″]]},”page”:”77-102″,”title”:”The moral limits of markets”,”type”:”chapter”},”uris”:[“″]}],”mendeley”:{“formattedCitation”:”(Skidelsky)”,”plainTextFormattedCitation”:”(Skidelsky)”,”previouslyFormattedCitation”:”(Skidelsky)”},”properties”:{“noteIndex”:0},”schema”:””}(Skidelsky).
