National Writers Series - An Evening with Michael Sandel - From City Opera House
Hereís a question: Would you hire mercenaries to fight our wars?... Or kill one person to save five?... Or auction off admissions to elite universities? Would you correct a shopkeeper who gave you too much change? Michael Sandel, Harvardís wildly popular professor and internationally renowned lecturer and author, confronts todayís looming political and ethical questions. His latest book, "What Money Canít Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets" (published April 24, 2012), asks, perhaps, the most pressing ethical question of our time: Is there something wrong with a society in which everything is for sale?
