Michael Sandel on the Moral Limits of Markets

Political philosopher Michael Sandel delivered his Reith Lecture recently. Are there some things which should not be sold? Do we need to think of ourselves less as consumers and more as citizens?

You'll find the 43-minute lecture here. You'll find the transcription here.

If you're unsure about committing almost an hour of your time, here is the short version. I highly recommend that you listen to the short version first!
