Business leaders will benefit from this timely presentation and a lively discussion of what it means to be good corporate citizens in our global economy.
Join Michael Sandel to discuss his new book What Money Can't Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets. Sandel takes up one of the biggest ethical questions of our time: market values have crowded out nonmarket norms in almost every aspect of life--medicine, education, government, law, art, sports, even family life and personal relations. Without quite realizing it, Sandel argues, we have drifted from "having "a market economy to "being "a market society. Isn't there something wrong with a world in which everything is for sale? If so, how can we prevent market values from reaching into spheres of life where they don't belong? What are the moral limits of markets?
