    Anyone who is interested in in the shape and direction of our so

    Anyone who is interested in in the shape and direction of our society should read this book. In What Money Can't Buy, Michael Sandel provides an interesting counter-point to the market fundamentalism that dominates our society today.

    In the United States we have been encouraged to let markets solve every problem, but there are limitations to the market. What Sandel asks is whether or not puttting something up for sale devalues it. Using examples including human blood, time, and civic involvement, he answers that selling something can cheapen it.

    I think everyone should read this book and think about what kind of society we want to live in, especially as we go through a round of elections where this discussion is being brought into sharp relief. Buy a copy or visit your library and get one. The questions in this book are some of the most important we face, and this is a side of the discussion that is too seldom heard.

    Too few writers work in the area of nonmonetary quantification of value. Sandel makes this an interesting read, presenting several approaches to look at the ways society assigns importance to every part of out lives. Wonderful discussion group starter.
