After Words

After Words: Michael Sandel, "What Money Can't Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets," hosted by Nicole Gelinas, Manhattan Institute

About the Program

Mercenaries can be paid to fight a country's wars; students can be paid to get good grades.  Mr. Sandel explores whether there's something wrong with a world in which everything seems to be for sale.  The author of international bestseller "Justice" explores how to get market values out of areas of life where he says they don't belong.   He discusses this issue with Manhattan Institute Fellow Nicole Gelinas, the author of "After the Fall: Saving Capitalism from Wall Street and Washington."
