“Happily, this is not a book about whether money can buy happiness. It is, however, a challenging analysis of whether a democracy that values justice and fairness should challenge the ‘market triumphalism’ of the past few decades. Should the bottom line always be the bottom line? From slavery, to prisons, to war, to life insurance, to priority lines at the airport—is there a moral price to be paid for commodifying more and more aspects of our lives? Sandel’s goal is to encourage ‘robust public discourse’ on this topic—and he certainly succeeded at our house. An accessible, timely and thought-provoking read.”—Mary, Annie Bloom’s Books, Portland.
