Here's 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, Harvard's wildly popular professor and internationally renowned lecturer and author, confronts today's looming political and ethical questions. His latest book, "What Money Can't 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?
